“I entered Wheaton in 1946. I was one of four daughters and the third in college at the same time. I was not on scholarship but did work as a substitute in the college dining room. The money I earned provided me with funds for occasional trips and money for clothes that I would not have had otherwise. Right from the start I wanted to repay Wheaton so that others could benefit as I had. I started thinking about a charitable gift annuity (my mother had one), and I decided that it was the best way to support the college. It pays me interest for the rest of my life while also benefiting Wheaton. I am happy to say that I’m giving back a token of all that I have received.”
