Day of Giving Overview

Hear what the Student Engagement Ambassadors have to say about the impact your generosity has on their lives at Wheaton.

On a personal note, as an alumna and current member of the Wheaton Fund team, I wanted to share why I do what I do for Wheaton. When I spend time with our student callers I reflect fondly on the calls I made to people like you. When I make my own gift to Wheaton it’s to brighten the future of the students like so many alumni, parents, and friends of the college did for me. I am forever grateful to Wheaton and all who support the college to strengthen and better our community. Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our inaugural Day of Giving.
