Phonathon Goals

Annually, the Whitworth Phonathon's main goal is to raise more than $200,000 in unrestricted gifts for The Whitworth Fund. We couldn't be more grateful for the generous support we receive from Whitworth donors like you on an annual basis.

Our goal this year is to raise $200,000 in gifts and pledges. Given the challenging economic climate of the past few years, we are especially grateful to all of the alumni, parents, grandparents, friends, and members of the senior class who continue to help us stay strong and further the mission of Whitworth University. Whether or not you made a gift, we'd love to hear from you this year!
