Calling all Whitties!

We asked whether this was the right time to host our spring give day, and we also heard the desire to connect with fellow Whitties is greater now than ever. So today and tomorrow, we invite you to join us in supporting students and celebrating the connections we have made because of Whitman during #WeAreWhitman.Regardless of your ability to give, we encourage you to connect with the Whittie community virtually and show our students that even though we are apart, they are part of a strong community who cares.

How you can join We Are Whitman:

1) Make a Gift to the Student Emergency Fund or Annual Fund.

Your gift to the Student Emergency Fund directly supports the needs of students by removing barriers to education and providing emergency funding for needs such as unanticipated travel, technology to access classes, or emergency funds for food and housing. Or, your gift to the Annual Fund provides a flexible, unrestricted gift to meet the greatest needs of our entire community. Even a $5 gift helps support our students immediately!

2) Show your Whittie Pride. 

We want to hear from you! Post on social using #WeAreWhitman. Share why you love Whitman or include a message of support for today's students, show off your Whitman gear or furry friends, and dig up a photo from your college days to post on #ThrowbackThursday. Check out our social media toolkit and downloads.

3) Connect Virtually. 

Grab a few Whitties to join the All Whittie Happy Hour on April 15 from 5-7pm, and post your photo and class year using #WeAreWhitman. Then on Thursday join a Q&A with Chaplain Adam Kirtley, and conversation with ASWC for an update on student life today.

4) Check Back Often. 

See the impact two days of giving can make for our students, scroll through the #WeAreWhitman posts to see familiar faces, and learn more about how students, faculty, and staff demonstrate resilience and creativity while approaching virtual learning.

No matter where you are in the world, you are a part of the Whitman community! 

Together, we can face any challenge. Together, We Are Whitman.
