The Charles Reagan Wilson Fund Campaign Reaches 109%!

Thank you so much to all of the generous donors who supported the Charles Reagan Wilson Graduate Student Support Fund through Ignite Ole Miss. We reached 100% of our goal of $25,000 on Monday, two days before the deadline. The campaign ended last night, and we’ve now raised $27,346  from 185 donors. Everyone at the Center has enjoyed watching the donor wall grow with the names of friends and alumni–thank you!

The fund will provide research support for students studying the South in the Southern Studies MA program and in the MA and PhD programs of the Arch Dalrymple III Department of History. The fund honors Dr. Charles Reagan Wilson, who retired after teaching 33 years at the University of Mississippi.

If you would still like to give and honor Dr. Wilson, click here. The more we raise, the more students we can support.


Thank you to our donors*!

*In addition to those listed below, we received 14 anonymous gifts. Several of the contributors below also gave multiple times, which I’ve indicated after his or her name. This list also includes donors who gave to the Fund when we established it in May 2014. There are several pledges that will add to the total, as well.
