We can do this

Go Beyond: Campaign for Wheaton is nearing the finish line. With just one month to go to the campaign’s close on June 30, 2014, alumnae/i, parents and friends are working toward two objectives: pushing the Wheaton Fund over the $4.7 million goal line and strengthening support for student scholarships. Success on both fronts is in sight. With a little help, Go Beyond will set a historic record for the college and greatly enhance the college’s foundation for academic excellence.
