Lifetime Giving Societies

Kentucky Wesleyan College has two societies that honor the generosity of donors whose cumulative giving to the institution totals $100,000 or more.

Through these societies, the College honors the extraordinary support of alumni, friends, faculty and staff. Private donors have a vital role in shaping the College’s future, and the Lifetime Giving Societies provide the means to recognize these most generous supporters.

The Winchester Society

Members of the Winchester Society have made commitments of $1 million or more to the College.

The society is named for Kentucky Wesleyan’s second campus located in Winchester, Ky. from 1890-1951. It was at the Winchester Campus that Kentucky Wesleyan admitted the first women as students, that intercollegiate athletics were introduced and that Minerva became a symbol of the Kentucky Wesleyan College spirit.
