Giving to Wheaton College

I do believe that if one is blessed, we are to be a blessing to others.

Giving to Wheaton College

Why Wheaton? It changed for me from an alma mater to a sending mission where we’re placing fully developed early kernels of Christian seeds that will reap great harvests...

Why the Classes of 2014 and 1984 Teleo Scholarship?

Many current students have either experienced first-hand or know someone who has faced the reality of financial loss that would make it impossible to finish their time at Wheaton. For an upperclassman, this is particularly tragic because of the relationships they have formed and strengthened that are then cut short. This scholarship is designed to offer financial assistance to seniors who would otherwise have to leave Wheaton College. In the original Greek of the New Testament, Teleo means to finish, complete, fulfill—something that these classes hope to help students accomplish in their Wheaton education.

Why the Wheaton Fund?

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.
