Wesley College was selected to receive a $100,000 grant from the Crystal Trust in December.

The Trust was created in 1947 by Irenee du Pont and received additional endowment under the terms of du Pont's will in 1964; since then it has operated under the current name, the Crystal Trust.

The Delaware-based foundation provides support to nonprofits in Delaware and Pennsylvania, giving Delaware first priority. The donation will be used to help support capital improvements to the college.

“We are so grateful for this recent support from the Crystal Trust as well as the past donations that have benefited Wesley College,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement William F. Pritchard. “The trust is a true partner in education.”
