Wesleyan Fund Hits It Big

DONOR CHALLENGE: DON’T WAIT! GIVE NOW! OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY!

Linked from Wesleyan’ s main page today is a desperate flashy new announcement designed to boost donations to The Wesleyan Fund before 2011:

For every alumni contribution of $25 or more received before December 31, 2010, Frank Sica ’73 will contribute $100 to the endowment—up to 10,000 gifts and $1 million!

Three cheers for überwealthy alums with generous Wes pride!  Sica, a former Biology major, serves on the Board of Trustees (shocker)—of Wesleyan, that is, and of the American Museum of Natural History. Do I foresee a massive exhibit on the human brain somewhere in Exley’s not-so-distant future? Please?

Some further info after the jump on the guy who may or may not be funding your financial aid for the next few years:
