Whitman is proud of the loyal support provided by the Annual Fund – each year, over 5,000 of our alumni and 30% of current student parents make gifts to advance our educational mission.

Your support for scholarship helps ensure that students from a variety of backgrounds will continue to have access to a Whitman education.

Continued support for priority projects is vital to our efforts to attract motivated and talented students.

Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends are integral to the financial strength of Whitman College. They augment resources available from tuition and endowment income, improving the overall quality of the liberal arts education we provide.
