Why should I give to Wittenberg?
[]  What is The Wittenberg Fund?

The Wittenberg Fund is the sustaining fund that provides financial support for virtually every purpose and function of the Wittenberg learning community. Contributions provide sustaining support for academic, scholarship, cultural and athletic programs; faculty retention and recruitment; campus renewal and beautification; and other department programs and initiatives.

[]  Why are philanthropic gifts important to the University?
The University has three primary sources of revenue: tuition, endowment earnings and gift income. Philanthropic gifts equal approximately $7 million of our revenue in an average non-campaign year. The more our donors, alumni and friends give, the better we are able to maintain salaries, facilities and tuition at competitive levels.

[]  Does my gift really matter?

Every gift, no matter the size, is important to the overall effort. It is a greatly under-appreciated fact that we influence others by our acts of kindness, compassion and charity. Quite often, it is the smaller, sacrificial gift that inspires greater contributions from others. No great effort is achieved without the participation of many-- and often in relation to the actions of others.
