The Power of One – Every Gift Counts!
Associate Director of Annual Giving
The Annual Fund allows all alumni and friends the opportunity to provide funds to meet the College's most critical need: financial aid. With a gift to the Annual Fund, you can make a lasting difference in the life of a Wheelock student and in the future of the College.
In the 2009-2010 academic year, gifts to the Wheelock College Annual Fund from more than 2,200 alumni and friends totaled $1.2 million. It would take gifts to the endowment of more than $25 million, paying the College 5 percent interest per year, to equal unrestricted gifts of $1.2 million.
Yet, $1.2 million covers only 12 percent of Wheelock's financial aid budget! More than 90 percent of our students need and receive financial aid. Every gift, at every level, helps chip away at this need. Your gift will be combined with gifts from others to constitute a significant source of current-use dollars.
Whether you make a gift of $25, $25,000, or somewhere in between, every member of our community is invited to make an investment in the lives of our students. Give online today or explore the menu on the left to learn about other ways to give to Wheelock.
"It seems like a lot of students need support in order to stay at Wheelock, and I really applaud the alumni who step up and make that possible. I think Wheelock is a place where students feel at home and rewarded for all of their hard work. It is a special place to be, but you probably already know that." -Alyssa Howe '10
