KA/Fideles Memorial Gift

It is obvious to us this September day in 1973 will live with the Fideles and KAs for a lifetime. The memories are compelling. We would like to honor those that are no longer with us by making a memorial gift to Wake Forest as we commemorate this infamous moment during our college careers. For more information on giving options, please click here. Gift totals will be announced in September.
