Interacting with students; it gets you excited that they would have new resources to take advantage of, and that we can be a part of improving the environment there that they can learn in...

Thank you to those that support the Wheaton Fund! Without their generous giving, I would not be able to be here.

Prayer Requests and Updates

For over two decades, Wheaton Associates have faithfully taken the needs of Wheaton College before the Lord. You stand with us through times of great joy and of trial, and for this we cannot thank you enough.

  • Praise God for the faithfulness of the Wheaton Associates family, which generously gave 72% of last year’s $5.8 million in Wheaton Fund gifts.
  • Please continue to pray for the students who study at Wheaton and then leave to help serve the Kingdom in all arenas of life. Pray for faculty and staff as they serve the mission of Wheaton College daily.

Just as the promise and potential of Wheaton students cannot be measured, we cannot begin to know the full value of what your prayers mean to the life and mission of Wheaton College.
