Phonathon Goals

Annually, the Whitworth Phonathon’s goal is to raise more than $200,000 in gifts for Whitworth. We are incredibly grateful for the generous support we receive from our alumni, parents and friends. However, whether or not you make a gift, we’d love to hear from you! Our students enjoy hearing your stories and sharing about their Whitworth experience.
