“Each time I hear or sing the words from the ‘Wheaton Hymn’—’Yet early founders still are we’—I feel both gratitude and pride for my alma mater. And each time I visit the campus or read an article on the website, I am reminded of all the opportunities for growth and learning I was given, and students today are receiving. I feel part of a continuum that has shaped me as an individual and Wheaton as an institution. For many years, I have given my annual gift to the Wheaton Fund, yet always wished that I could do more—could contribute in a meaningful way to the continuum that is Wheaton. My husband and I decided that, in celebration of our 50th college reunions at our respective schools, we would make special gifts to express our gratitude for the colleges that made such a difference in our lives. By creating a charitable gift annuity, I am able to keep an income stream that I need now, and provide a larger gift than I dreamed possible, which will be part of the Wheaton endowment in perpetuity.”
