Your Wabash experience was powered by the investments of thousands of alumni and friends who came before you. Their investment in Wabash meant an affordable Wabash education with benefits such as study abroad, immersion trips, and undergraduate research. It isn’t the amount that counts, but a sustained investment that creates a bigger impact over time.
Your investment continues to make Wabash a college that changes lives today and in the future. Set up a monthly credit card payment and the gift is made with ease. Can you afford $5.00 a month? If so, that’s a nice yearly investment to start.
If you live in Indiana, get a Wabash license plate, through the state’s college and university program. You’re investing $25 in Wabash – the BMV will forward your gift to the College – and you’re recruiting for Wabash, your plate says it with each trip around town. Someone seeing your plate may ask you about Wabash – there’s your opportunity to make a connection.
Indiana also offers a tax deduction that makes your gift very reasonable. The College will mail you tax information right after the first of the year. Many employers offer a matching gift program. This is a great opportunity for you to increase the impact of your investment in the College.
Your community is also a place to invest. In living Wabash’s mission statement, there’s ample opportunity to invest in a stronger, more vibrant local area.
Become involved in community service. You can do this while “spreading the fame of her honored name” by investing in W.A.B.A.S.H. Day each year. Take on a leadership role with your church, civic organization, or a local charity. Practice “leading effectively” and “living humanely” in your everyday life. You can change the world by making a key difference in one element of your community.
