The 1834 Student Campaign works to educate and raise awareness among undergraduate students of the university’s need for philanthropic support. In addition, the campaign provides students leadership opportunities as they celebrate the University’s past while helping to ensure the future in a meaningful way.
The Wake Forest Fund acts as a reserve of unrestricted dollars for the University to use for a variety of operating expenses. The main priorities of the Wake Forest Fund are student aid, faculty development, emerging programs for students and library and technology resources.
While the Wake Forest Fund has a number of gift designations, giving to the general fund allows the University to support the most critical priorities at that time. While all gifts are appreciated, donations to the Wake Forest Fund are the most immediately valuable to the University.
Gifts to the Campaign go to The Wake Forest Fund, which provides unrestricted annual support to the University, allowing your gift to be used where the need is greatest. Your support will sustain excellence in teaching, scholarship, and academic programs at Wake Forest, and it will preserve the quality of a student experience without equal in higher education.
“Being a part of the 1834 Student Campaign allows me to reflect on what it means to be a member of the Wake Forest community. Wake has given so much to me, I can only hope that I can give back through my time and dedication to making Mother So Dear the best it can be! I’m honored to be a co-chair for the class of 2014, and even more honored to call myself a Demon Deacon!”
–Katie Tassinari, 2013-2014 Senior Class Co-Chair of the 1834 Student Campaign
