Support

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Wheeler School community!

We are grateful for and rely on the generosity of our alumnae/i, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends who demonstrate their belief in our mission and priorities through philanthropic support of our annual, endowment and special campaigns.

Each year, Wheeler strives to say ‘yes’ to opportunities for our students to be joyful learners, critical thinkers, and compassionate citizens in our traditionally robust and rigorous academic setting. We support our students after Wheeler, by hosting events, programs, and networking opportunities across the country so our ever-growing alumnae/i community has the opportunity to come together in meaningful ways as they make their impact on the world.

Ways to give

As you consider your gift plans for Wheeler, it is helpful to consider the various ways in which you and your charitable investment can play a vital role in the life of the school and how those options best support your financial and charitable giving goals.

When your philanthropic goals include supporting this year’s programmatic and divisional experiences, we invite you to support the Annual Giving Program with a gift to the Wheeler or Hamilton Annual Fund.  

Gifts made between today and June 30, each year will support this school year’s operating budget; other distinct times and options for giving include:

  • Community Giving Day – Wheeler’s global day of philanthropy set for October 24, 2019.
  • Wheeler’s Night Out – our annual ‘party with a purpose’ that offers opportunities for families, businesses and friends to support Wheeler through sponsorship and other appeals. The 2019-2020 event is set for May 2, 2020, and details will be available soon.

 When your philanthropic goals include support for special programs or initiatives, capital projects, endowment or future generations, we invite you to talk with a member of the Advancement Team or explore non-cash gift options here

However you choose to support Wheeler, we look forward to partnering with you and are grateful for your generosity.
