Gifts in Action


Every day student lives are transformed across the Whittier campus: presenting research from summer travel with a professor, leading a team to victory on the athletic fields, or working feverishly to meet a deadline for the Quaker Campus.

These opportunities are made possible through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, who invest in the future of Whittier College and its students with their philanthropic support. While the overall impact of these transformations is immeasurable, the following stories highlight some of the ways donors are making a significant difference to the Whittier community.
