The Whittier Fund


Gifts to the Whittier Fund secure the foundation of Whittier College's institutional excellence.

A strong Whittier Fund allows for investment in every area of the College and for sustained growth of core services that are the essence of the Poet experience. Gifts to the Whittier Fund are expended immediately to help meet the College's most important needs and priorities including:

  • Critical financial support for academic and extracurricular programs that inspire our students every day
  • Scholarships to bridge the financial gap for academically talented students who might otherwise not have the opportunity to earn a college degree
  • Institutional investments that create a great learning experience, including modern classrooms, teaching and research labs, information technology, and living spaces
  • Investments in Wardman Library, the College's intellectual hub, in order to meet the research, curricular, and information needs of students and faculty in the 21st century.

Whittier's fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Support the Whittier Fund today.
