Giving at a Glance
During this time of transition, as Wheelock said goodbye to Jackie Jenkins-Scott and welcomed Dr. David J. Chard as the 14th President, alumni and friends continued to generously support the College, helping provide needed financial aid to current Wheelock students. Donors made thousands of gifts to support the renovation of Wheelock Family Theatre, to endow a fund for student travel and made gifts, both large and small, to the Annual Fund which provides direct financial scholarship assistance hundreds of students.
Giving Day on March 30, 2016 provided the highlight of the Fiscal Year 2016 Annual Fund. The Wheelock community was challenged by two anonymous donors to make 250 gifts on one day. Successfully surpassing that goal, 453 alumni, faculty, staff, parents, students and friends made gifts totaling over $135,000! Showing their commitment to the mission of Wheelock, more faculty and staff made a gift during FY16 than in any previous year.
With donations ranging from $1 to $65,000+, The Annual Fund exceeded its goals for the year and raised over $1.2million for student scholarship. Showcasing the importance of participation and its cumulative impact, 10% of the goal was achieved by the nearly 2,000 donors who gave gifts between $1 and $500.
Wheelock in incredibly grateful for the huge impact donors have on the institution. Support for the Annual Fund not only affirms the value of the Wheelock mission, but drives us all forward to continue to serve our students and the Wheelock community.
