Giving Back to Gold and Black

On Giving Day—April 23—alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of Nebraska Wesleyan strengthened the University as they gave of their time by sharing NWU's impact on their lives, of their talent as official Giving Day volunteers and of their treasure as donors.


Together we raised a record-breaking $297,000 for the Archway Fund from over 780 donors. Gifts made an immediate impact on students, faculty and staff as we navigated distance learning and working this Spring. Participation on Giving Day honored NWU’s 133-year history and has helped plant the seeds for the next 133 years of our commitment to academic excellence, personalized experiences and robust community support.


We can’t wait to gather again on campus. We’re hoping to celebrate commencement in early August and begin the Fall semester on campus together. You can find updates on these decisions on our website:


In the meantime, record participation on Giving Day made us all feel a little closer despite the physical distance.
