  • Recurring Gift Program
    The Recurring Gift Program is intended to make supporting W&L's Annual Fund more convenient for the donor, and even more beneficial to W&L. This option allows donors to split their total yearly gift into manageable installments (monthly, quarterly, every other month, etc.). Donations can be made from a credit card or checking/savings account. And it allows W&L to immediately put these gifts to work throughout the academic year.
