Woman’s Wesleyan Educational Council

The Woman’s Wesleyan Educational Council (WWEC), founded on April 24, 1896, at the call of Chancellor Crook, with 21 charter members, is a statewide organization composed of Local Chapters, Members at Large, and Nebraska Wesleyan Representatives. Its purpose is to interest women of Nebraska and friends of the Council in promoting the advancement of Nebraska Wesleyan University and in providing scholarships for NWU students.


Membership dues are $25. If you have questions, you can email barbaragriffith633 [at] yahoo.com (barbaragriffith633[at]yahoo[dot]com) or send a check, payable to WWEC and mail to Barbara Griffith, Treasurer, Box 413, Hickman, NE 68372.

Endowment/Scholarship Fund

Donations to the endowment/scholarship fund of WWEC should be made payable to Nebraska Wesleyan University. On the memo line write: WWEC Endowment Fund. Please mail to NWU Advancement Office, 5000 St. Paul Avenue, Lincoln, NE 68504. The Advancement Office will provide you with a donation receipt to use as a deduction on your income taxes.

Interest from this fund provides for the annual scholarships given in the name of WWEC at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
