Planning the future. Giving possibility.
Your planned gifts can have an enormous impact on the future of Wheaton College and our students—an impact that will last for generations. A planned gift can benefit both you and Wheaton, during your lifetime and in the future.
When you include Wheaton in your will or estate plan, or when you establish a life-income gift with the college, you will be joining the Founders Society and helping to ensure that Eliza Baylies Wheaton’s vision endures. Thank you for helping to keep Wheaton strong and vibrant for generations to come.
