Priority One: Success for Today


The Whittier Fund allows the College to put your gift to use where the need is greatest.

Aside from student tuition payments, the Whittier Fund is the most important source of unrestricted support for the College’s operations, underwriting every aspect of the Whittier experience for students. Providing a direct budget relief for the College’s daily operations, Whittier Fund gifts – both large and small – add up in support of merit scholarships, faculty salaries, library services, athletic teams, growing technology needs, as well as the maintenance of our historic campus. Every student, professor, academic department, and athletic team on the Poet campus benefits from annual gifts to the Whittier Fund. The loyal support of thousands of alumni and parents via unrestricted gifts is essential to sustaining the ongoing Poet experience.
