Pay It Forward Day—celebrated Sunday, April 28—is a global initiative that exists to make a difference by creating a huge ripple of kindness felt across the world. We believe that small acts, when multiplied by hundreds of people can change the world for the better!
To celebrate, your donation—now through April 30—will be matched by anonymous Wheaton community members, dollar-for-dollar up to $70,000.
In these challenging economic times, continuing to provide Wheaton’s distinctive and transformative education is dependent on the support of the entire community. Each and every day you give so much of yourself to Wheaton—and for that, we are deeply grateful. By extending what you already give to the College to include philanthropic support, you would further help ensure Wheaton’s continued success.

Wheaton College faculty and staff can sign up to have a gift deducted from their pay checks.
