The Wittenberg Fund

The Wittenberg Fund

Having Light, we will meet this moment, when circumstances demand that we fill the most pressing, most immediate needs of the university.

Why It Matters

Wittenberg graduates lead by example, strengthening communities and serving the public good. Our alumni can be there for others because Wittenberg was there for them. Every gift to Having Light: The Campaign for Wittenberg University, regardless of its size, cements our legacy of passing our light for decades to come. 

How Can We Make A Difference

  • Make unrestricted gifts to The Wittenberg Fund, making up the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a Wittenberg education and supporting the operations that make Wittenberg an engaging place to be a college student.  Gifts to this fund support the greatest need of the institution.
  • Break records for alumni giving participation, showing our affection for Wittenberg and signaling to foundations and other grant makers that Wittenberg has broad community support. 

Why Right Now

Now is our moment to ensure an exceptional educational experience for current students, and financial stability and sustainability for years to come. Two decades have passed since Wittenberg's last major campaign. The need is great.  

When it comes to participation, it is not the amount of money that counts. It is the percentage of alumni who give. With more first-time donors, more renewed donors, more retained donors, and a higher alumni participation rate than ever before — Wittenberg will survive and thrive.
