through 4 months, where do YOU stand?
It’s nice that we don’t have to rhetorically ask, “have you made a gift to Wabash College yet this year?” After all it is public knowledge – right here: http://www.wabash.edu/alumni/honorroll
So we’ll rhetorically ask, “is your name on the list?” Through 4 months of the College’s fiscal year, 94% of you would have to answer ‘NO.’
If you’ve heard it before, we’ll tell ya again: any size donation is worthwhile! Do it.
Don’t wanna hear about it from us? Below is an excerpt from Wabash’s Annual Giving web page. If you are reading this, take 2-1/2 minutes and go make a quick donation @ http://www.wabash.edu/alumni/annualgiving. Do it. Plus, think of 8 months of freedom from mailings, e-mails, phone calls, etc from the College, Class Agents, etc asking you to ‘Stand Tall’…talk about sweet relief!
Wabash Always Fights,
“Annual Fund gifts from alumni and friends are central to Wabash students and the College’s mission of educating men to Think critically, Act responsibly, Lead effectively, and Live humanely.
Here are a few examples of how annual gifts impact Wabash men and help them grow TALL.
Scholarships & Financial Aid. What it costs to educate each Wabash student is about half of what the College charges for tuition. Students can take advantage of numerous merit-based scholarships like the Top 10 or Top 20 scholarship programs — where awards range from $10,000 to $17,500 per year. Annual Fund support contributes to scholarships and need-based financial aid, and makes the Wabash experience affordable for students who might not be able to attend the College without some type of assistance.
Teaching & Learning. Wabash is able to maintain a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 13 students. In this rigorous academic environment, students are engaged with some of the finest teachers in the world.
Immersion Learning Courses. Wabash remains committed to Immersion Learning Courses that take students off-campus — and outside their comfort zones — for up close and personal learning experiences with faculty every step of the way. Annual Fund gifts support these initiatives that provide life-changing experiences for current students.
Student Life. Technology, advising, counseling, academic support, internships, athletics, and co-curricular opportunities — the list is endless in the far-reaching impact of Annual Fund support on student life.
Current students who walk the Wabash campus live out the College’s mission statement each day. You can help them on their Wabash journey. You can help them Think critically, Act responsibly, Lead effectively, and Live humanely.“
