Class of 2018 Senior Gift

Be a part of a long-standing senior class tradition...


The Senior Class Gift initiative is a time-honored tradition, which provides opportunity for members of the senior class to make a meaningful philanthropic contribution through the Wheaton Fund and is the first step to becoming a loyal Wheaton Fund supporter. 


What is the Senior Class Gift?

Our crowdfunding project aims to inspire the members of the Class of 2018 to make their impact on Wheaton via contributions to the Wheaton Fund. This fund is a major contributor to scholarships and financial aid at Wheaton. With more than 90% of our student population receiving some form of financial aid from the college, we feel strongly that the biggest impact to be made is making Wheaton more affordable. If you choose to give toward scholarships, 100% of that gift goes toward financial aid - back to students. It's students helping students. We want the Class of 2018 to look back and see the tangible changes they've made in the lives of our classmates on campus - so let's work together to make the Wheaton experience accessible for students of today, like us!

How will your gift make an impact?

All areas relevant to student life at Wheaton, including financial aid, athletics, and the arts receive backing from Wheaton Fund donors. Funds raised from the Senior Class Gift also help the Wheaton community by financially supporting the initiatives that have shaped our experience at Wheaton- from orientation programs, FYS, club sports, internships, studying abroad to technology in our classrooms.Without Senior Gifts from years past and other loyal Wheaton Fund donors we may not have had these amazing experiences. So, let's continue to make the Wheaton experience as vibrant as possible, by supporting the Wheaton Fund!

All donations made through this platform will go to the Area of Greatest Need, however if you want your donation to designated to one of following areas (see list below), please click here to donate:

  • Arts & Cultural Learning

  • Athletics

  • Experiential Learning

  • Scholarship

  • Science, Technology and Library Resources

  • Strengthening Ties to the Community

  • Sustainability

Let's show the Wheaton community that the Class of 2018 knows how to lead, and help us reach our goal of 250 Senior Donors before the end of the semester!

You can also help out by making sure everyone you know that is graduating this year participates. Spread the word by sharing our page on Facebook, Twitter or email!
