Opening Doors

“Opportunity is defined as ‘a set of circumstances that makes it possible to do something.’ A thesaurus suggests other words can be substituted such as chance, occasion, opening, option, shot, break, or even window of opportunity. Students at Wake Forest are given a chance to grow, to expand their horizons and test new ideas, and become involved in service and the community. Please join me by making a gift to The Wake Forest Fund so students from this and future generations can experience all that Wake Forest has to offer. This is your ‘opportunity’ to make a difference!”
