Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities for the Annual Giving Office include:

Each class is chaired by a Class Representative (Class Rep) who writes a fall and spring solicitation that is mailed to their class. Class Reps and Associate Class Reps are assigned to 10-40 classmates and follow-up with them by email, phone, social media, and/or hand-written note to encourage them to make a gift to the Whitman College Annual Fund. If you are interested in volunteering for your class, please reach out to annualgiving@whitman.edu or 509-527-5189.
