Championing Wheaton

The Keefe Family Foundation’s robust generosity has expanded with a recent grant totaling $33,000 to support student financial aid, improvements to Keefe Hall, and an upcoming makeover for the Clark Center Lobby, an activity hub for Wheaton’s intercollegiate, club and intramural sports.

This current Keefe gift signals immediate financial relief for a Wheaton student and continues the foundation’s long history of giving to Wheaton, which includes the creation of the Keefe Boston Latin Scholarship Endowed Fund in 1997 and the Keefe Family Foundation Work and Learning Fellows Endowment, a critical resource for self-designed student internships. The award also augments the Keefe Project Scholarship, a five-year grant that facilitated larger financial aid packages for increased numbers of students and a Keefe-created endowment established for repair and upkeep of Keefe Field.

Keefe Family Foundation contributions to Wheaton over recent years total more than $300,000, impacting all areas of the campus and curriculum.
