Giving to Wheaton College

I’m so thankful that we have the opportunity to give back to this generation of Wheaton students… it is a privilege to be a part of.

While my gift won’t go very far, I want Wheaton as an institution to be encouraged to continue this sort of investment...

Class of 1954

The 60th reunion gift gives the class of 1954 an opportunity to leave a legacy of generosity, hope, and faithfulness for current and future Wheaton students.


60th Reunion Gift

The Class of 1954 is honoring its 60th reunion by giving to the Wheaton Fund and the Louis Rasera Class of 1954 Scholarship. All classmates are encouraged to get involved and make a special gift to the College.

The Louis Rasera Class of 1954 Scholarship

  • Goal: $200,000
  • End Date: June 30th, 2015

This scholarship, created in celebration of the Class of 1954’s 50th reunion, helps cover the cost of attending Wheaton for a missionary or ethnically diverse student who might have had a difficult time attending Wheaton otherwise. Over the 10 years since the scholarship was established it has helped many students pursue their Wheaton education, including a recent recipient:

"I would like to sincerely express my gratitude for the unwavering support of scholarship providers. Your contributions have served as a strong encouragement in my studies, and I will continue to remember your tireless generosity in light of future endeavors. Your help making my education possible has set a strong example for me, and it is my dream to return the favor to future Wheaton students. Thank you!"

The Wheaton Fund

  • Goal: $225,000
  • End Date: June 30, 2016

The Wheaton Fund is the engine of Wheaton’s mission. As the primary funding vehicle through which Wheaton College advances its highest priorities, the Wheaton Fund is sustained by the unrestricted gifts of alumni, parents, and friends. Gifts to the Wheaton Fund help keep Wheaton affordable for every student and they also support the College’s Strategic Priorities.
