Why Your Support Matters

Our signature event, Gaudiosa 2020, is back and better than ever. We invite you to join in Wheeling University's largest annual fundraising event which features a cocktail reception, delicious dinner, entertainment and much more!

Wheeling University is committed to making a Catholic education financially accessible. The Gaudiosa has become a tremendous event over the last several years, providing an opportunity for the community to come together in support of our students. With your support, the University can generate scholarship dollars for students ensuring that qualified young men and women can access the only private, Catholic education in the state of West Virginia. Additionally, our Wheeling University mission becomes a reality – to provide a quality, Catholic, liberal arts education in the Ignatian tradition to our students – educating them for life, leadership and service with and among others.

Your support of Gaudiosa 2020 is an investment in our students’ future. Thank you for your generosity.
