Leadership Giving

Gifts to endowment and major capital efforts such as the recent Campaign For Wheeler (which raised $21+ Million for both initiatives) are critical to the future of The Wheeler School. From supporting Student Scholarships, or enhancements to the Providence or Wheeler Farm campuses,  or Faculty Compensation and Professional Development Funds, here are ways your gifts support the students and teachers at Wheeler.

Endowed Student Support
Helping a deserving student attend Wheeler is an investment that has endless returns. Your gift to fund a new scholarship endowment or to add to an existing endowment will help Wheeler provide the most generous tuition assistance packages possible. This is critical in a time when a growing number of families are requesting financial aid to help provide the best possible education for their child.

Endowed Faculty Support
Providing competitive compensation packages for new and current faculty who invest their careers in our students is a school priority. As the endowment portfolio for faculty compensation and professional development funds grow, so too does Wheeler's ability to offer a competitive edge in attracting and retaining top faculty.

Capital Improvements

Campus enhancements and additions are a natural part of any schools growth and history. Gifts to capital initiatives ensure that the school will offer students and faculty the finest educational environment in which to learn and teach. At Wheeler, while the transformation from the Campaign for Wheeler is nearly complete, other capital improvements are being identified and defined.

The Campaign for Wheeler: Be Exceptional successes:
  • renovation and dedication of Clark Alumni House (for Ruth Payan Clark '47 and her husband Jim Clark honoring the largest gift made by or on behalf of a Wheeler alumna/us.)
  • creation of the Nulman Lewis Student Center
  • renovation and expansion of the Pelson Student Union
  • improvements to open spaces on the main and East Campus, including the Leland P. Weingeroff Basketball Court, a new playground, outdoor gathering spaces and a turf field.
  • renovation and expansion of the Hamilton School building, doubling its square footage, creating tuturing and assembly spaces, transforming into the Wharton P. Whitaker Building
