Wheaton’s supporters pushed annual giving to the college to new heights during the 2010–2011 school year. Alumnae/i, parents and friends gave $4,104,865 to the Wheaton Fund, exceeding last year’s $3.9 million mark.
The final Wheaton Fund tally for the 2011 fiscal year reflects a modest increase in alumnae/i participation as well as the generosity of the members of the Mary Lyon Society, who make leadership gifts to the college on a yearly basis. As a group, the Mary Lyon Society contributed $3.6 million.
“Wheaton’s donors have truly ‘gone beyond’ expectations this year,” said Mary Casey, vice president for college advancement. “We are tremendously grateful.”
