As parents, you invest a tremendous amount in your child’s education. But you may be surprised to know that tuition does not cover the full cost of providing a Wheaton education. Tuition, room and board constitute about 80 percent of the college’s operating budget. Wheaton counts on the generosity of alumni, parents and friends to help make up the difference.
The mission of Wheaton College is to provide a transformative liberal arts education for intellectually curious students in a collaborative, academically vibrant residential community that values a diverse world. Wheaton aspires to be the leading liberal arts institution in preparing students to create innovative solutions to big challenges—and to act on them.
The purpose of the Parents Fund is to connect the families of our students to this mission, to the college community, and to the broader Wheaton community through meaningful opportunities for intellectual engagement, volunteerism and philanthropy.
We invite every family to make an impact on their student’s education with a gift to the Parents Fund and we thank you for your commitment to Wheaton and your student.
