The Wittenberg Fund




We know you love Wittenberg.

THANK YOU! We far-exceeded both of our goals of 250 and 396 donors for our Day of Giving, with 490 donors! Thanks to you, we raised more than $60,000 in gifts to the university. Your support changes lives in allowing students to experience the same magic you experienced while here at Wittenberg.

You, our Tiger Alumni and Friends, showed your commitment to Wittenberg, and we want to express our thanks and appreciation for your support. You are the reason Wittenberg matters. Some of you discovered your passion here. You developed a love of learning, and you found your path and purpose.

We can't begin to express our sincere appreciation for the outpouring of support from you, our alumni and friends, during our Commit to Witt Day of Giving.

We asked you to "Commit to Witt" and you did! Thank you.

The Wittenberg Fund

Annual gifts to The Wittenberg Fund support the nationally recognized faculty and classroom experiences, academic scholarships, and every other component of Wittenberg’s mission-driven, student-centered education.

Your annual gift helps Wittenberg continue its tradition of excellence and provide an educational experience that consistently demonstrates better retention and graduation rates, as well as higher job placement rates.

National Excellence

“Having Light, We Pass It On To Others” isn’t just our motto—it’s a promise that our faculty and students take to heart each day.

That’s why Wittenberg University ranks 4th in the nation for “Most Accessible Professors,” tallying 99 out of a possible 100 points in the Princeton Review’s 2014 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 378 Colleges.

Mission-Driven, Student-Centered

Wittenberg’s dedicated faculty have always insisted on intellectual rigor as they provide a personalized, first-rate education. Ranked 11th for “Best Classroom Experience” and 15th for “Professors Get High Marks,” Wittenberg’s academic excellence makes it a leader in graduate program placement and in number of students who go on to earn a Ph.D. (Princeton Review, 2011)

Whether to restore Springfield ecosystems through the Buck Creek renewal project or preserve local history in archaeological excavations on campus, Wittenberg offers numerous opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning.
