Gifts from our loyal alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends change lives every day. Your contributions allow capable students to pursue an education that otherwise seems beyond reach. They provide the opportunity for faculty and students to discover new horizons through in-class education and out-of-class exploration. Every gift from you, our faithful supporters, affects the most important asset at Wingate University – its people.
Please take a moment to explore our philanthropic opportunities to find an initiative that is personally meaningful. Thank you for supporting Wingate University.

- Lifetime Giving Circles
The Leadership in Loyalty Circle honors donors who have given five or more years consecutively. Donors are recognized at the 5, 10, 15, and 20 year levels. Once a donor reaches 23 years of giving, they are inducted into the Jerry E. McGee Society, which recognizes Dr. McGee’s 23 years of service to Wingate. All members of the Leadership in Loyalty Circle are esteemed for their steadfast commitment to Wingate’s mission.
According to the National Survey of Student Engagement, 84 percent of Wingate seniors participated in two or more “high-impact practices” (service learning, research with faculty, internship, study abroad, W’International, or culminating senior experience) during their time at the University. That compares with just 67 percent at our peer institutions. These high-impact experiences would not be possible without your gifts to the Annual Fund.
