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
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!"
- Goal: $200,000
- End Date: June 30th, 2015

Gifts to the Wheaton Fund help keep Wheaton affordable for every student and they also support the College’s Strategic Priorities.
