“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”
— Winston Churchill

Whitman students benefit from the generosity of those who made gifts to the college through their estates. Please consider including Whitman in your estate by listing the college as a beneficiary of your retirement account, life insurance, donor advised fund, or by including Whitman in your will or trust.

You can:

  • Create a scholarship to help deserving students attend Whitman
  • Establish an endowment to support our dedicated and talented faculty
  • Strengthen Whitman’s financial foundation with a gift to the endowment

Your legacy gift is a vital investment in the future of Whitman, its students and the world they will shape.

Jamie Kennedy ’96, director of planned giving, can help you plan your legacy gift. Call him at (509) 527-5989 or e-mail More information is available at the Office of Planned Giving.
