The Whittier Fund

Every single student, faculty member, academic program, and department on the Poet campus benefits from annual gifts to the Whittier Fund, and therefore, it is the highest funding priority for Whittier College. This annual fund is a critical source of unrestricted support that allows Whittier to use your gift where the need is greatest.

Poets United: Annual Campaign for the Whittier Fund

37 Poet alumni across nine decades (click here to see who they are) are calling on members of the Poet family to unite and make a difference. If each donor to the Whittier Fund matched his or her largest contribution, this united effort would bring in a new record of $4.2 million this fiscal year – more than doubling the support generated for the College last year. Equally astounding, a gift of any size from every alumnus or alumna who has ever made a gift to the Whittier Fund would result in nearly 50% participation, double our highest participation rate ever.

An annual fund and alumni participation rate that more than doubled previous highs would transform the level of support for student scholarships, faculty salaries, library resources, and athletic programs. Acting united, the Poet family can help Whittier College thrive.

Please renew your support for the Whittier Fund. A gift to the Whittier Fund is how you can best serve your alma mater. Our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
