Donor Recognition

Relationships have always been at the core of the Wabash experience-between students and their professors, alumni and the young men they mentor, and students working hard together in a constant pursuit of excellence. Gifts to the College enable these relationships to flourish. In the classrooms and laboratories, on the playing fields, and on the Fine Arts Center stages - it is the generosity and support of alumni and friends that is vital to relationships that are the essence of Wabash.
Thank you for your support.

Loyalty Society

The Wabash Always Loyalty Society honors alumni and friends who demonstrate leadership through their philanthropic loyalty, and recognizes members for consecutive years of giving to the College at 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 or more years.

Consistent giving is the foundation on which all philanthropy to Wabash is built. Strong participation sends a clear message to our students that those who came before them place a high value on the Wabash living and learning experience and are willing to invest in the College.  Alumni and friends who are generous and loyal in their annual support expand Wabash’s great philanthropic tradition.

1832 Society - Leadership and Philanthropy

The Wabash mission statement boldly proclaims that the College educates men “to think critically, act responsibly, lead effectively, and live humanely.” Members of the 1832 Society demonstrate for students what it means to “lead effectively” when they generously contribute annual gifts of $1,000 or more.

At Wabash we call it philanthropic leadership, and we recognize those who give $1,000 or more each year as members of the 1832 Society. It is a small but important group that has a serious impact on the demanding learning environment that is the essence of the Wabash experience.

The 1832 Society is serious Philanthropy
Tuition revenue only accounts for half of what it costs to educate a student. Every student benefits from a “silent” scholarship before receiving any merit- or need-based financial assistance. Leadership gifts allow Wabash to recruit talented, hard-working, and well-rounded students regardless of their financial circumstances.

Leadership gifts allow Wabash to attract and retain faculty who are passionate about their disciplines and committed to engaging teaching.

1832 Society gifts provide a rigorous teaching and learning environment balanced with an enriching student life experience. From weeklong immersion learning trips, and weekend athletic and artistic events, 1832 Society support ensures Wabash men have an unparalleled education.

The impact of 1832 Society gifts is substantial.  Consider this: every student would have to pay an additional $3,643 to match what Annual Fund gifts provide each year. Those who give $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund each year as members of the 1832 Society account for approximately 80% of the Annual Fund total each year.
