OK y’all, it’s that time of year again. You know that as a general rule, I like to keep money talk out of the Daily Deac, but we are getting to the end of our fiscal year and our year-end goals are very much on our minds.
It may surprise folks to know that tuition does not cover the full cost of a WFU education. We look to gifts from alumni, parents, and friends each year to make up the gap between what tuition provides and what we actually need for our students and faculty.
We are tasked with securing support for the Parents’ Campaign of the Wake Forest Fund and this year we have a donor goal of 3,100 donors. We are just a bit shy of that total.
For today only, if we can secure 1,000 gifts (of any amount) to the Wake Forest Fund, an anonymous benefactor will give $100K specifically to support financial aid! So I am asking the Daily Deacdom to help!!
Please, if you have not yet made a gift to the Parents’ Campaign of the Wake Forest Fund this year, please make a gift today. You can give securely online. Your gift, no matter if it is $1 or $1 million, will add one more donor to the total we need this year.
If you want to make an even greater impact, you can join one of our giving societies. Giving societies allow you to give at a set level each year – and that is hugely helpful to Wake, because we can project how much revenue we expect each year from those giving societies. It essentially takes a lot of the guessing out of budgeting. So you decide the level and make a pledge, and then every year we send you a pledge reminder. Giving society members get invited to special events on campus and sometimes in regions across the country as well. Win-win.
Whether you join a giving society or make a one-time gift, we thank you for making a gift!
And if the Daily Deacdom can come through and push us over the finish line for our donor goal, I will not talk money again this fiscal year – except to thank you when we hit our goal 🙂
