Below you will find answers to many common questions about Wheeling University Day of Giving 2022.
What is Wheeling University Giving Day?
Wheeling University Giving Day is a 24-hour campaign to inspire alumni, students, parents, friends, and the larger community to make a gift to any area of campus. The goal is to bring the entire community together so we can all help this effort by sharing the campaign on social media and financially supporting Wheeling University.
Why should I participate in Wheeling University Day of Giving?
Philanthropy has never been more important than it is now. Private support from alumni, friends and others helps fund scholarships for students who otherwise might not have access to higher education. Support from alumni, parents and friends also funds program enhancements and hands-on learning experiences for students. By giving back to Wheeling, you are making a quality, Catholic education affordable to the next generation of Cardinals.
