Honor Roll of Donors 2012-2013

THANKS A MILLION! Wells College is fortunate to have such loyal and generous stewards. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, alumnae, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, friends, and partners of this wonderful College contributed over $5.1 million in support of the Wells experience.

The spirit of philanthropy that is so evident among the Wells community makes the Wells experience come to life, and it assures critical funding for all that we do. In so many ways, the ultimate beneficiaries of your generosity are the women and men who choose Wells for their educational journeys.

In keeping with our commitment to more sustainable practices, this year we reduced the number of pages in the print version of the Honor Roll of Donors. Thus, the majority of the lists that typically appear in the Honor Roll are now hosted on our website as noted below, and include all donors to the College for the 2012-13 fund year. The Honor Roll of Donors for the current fund year (ending June 30, 2014), will be posted by September 2014.

We appreciate your contributions to Wells! Please let us know if this new way of recognizing annual donors is appealing to you – or if you have suggestions for other ways to share the good news of so many generous donors.
