The Wabash Women’s Collective

The Wabash Women’s Collective harnesses the giving power and interests of women by bringing together the women leaders, chief supporters, and giant believers in Wabash College and its students in a space for high-impact, women-driven philanthropic leadership. The Collective is a robust, diverse, equitable group of women who build bridges, welcome innovation, and honor one another through meaningful giving and substantive relationship building.  Members of the Collective engage in collective learning and dialogue about trends affecting young men in college (including enrollment, persistence, and graduation), make an impact on enhancing student success, and create a philanthropic legacy with Wabash College and the young men educated here.

In just two years, the Collective has funded nearly $140,000 in projects that positively impact the student experience at Wabash through leadership development, peer mentorship programs, health insurance for uninsured students, supplemental funds for study abroad, and belonging for international students, WLAIP participants, and neurodivergent students. Among the Collective’s early accomplishments has been the transformation of Kendall House on the College’s campus into a hub for the Counseling Center and Student Wellness.


Their memories of Wabash don’t include favorite professors, learning “Old Wabash,” or competing on Chadwick Court, but their support for the institution and the young men it serves is paving the way for a new movement on campus: women as drivers of philanthropy.
