THERE'S STRENGTH IN A FAMILY THAT COMES TOGETHER
The Wagner experience is made possible for our students today because of the generosity of our Wagner family. Counting all of our alumni, parents, students, and friends of the College, we are more than 20,000 strong and each one makes a difference. Gifts to the Wagner Fund will support scholarships, student life, faculty resources, and technology.
"I was born in New York but raised in El Salvador, my mother's home country, until I was 11 years old. I have been living independently since I was in high school. I work hard every single day in order to succeed. Thanks to Wagner College, I received scholarships and financial aid in order to afford a Wagner education and even to study abroad for one semester. Last spring, I was named the Megerle Scholar for Achievement in the Sciences. Recognition like this inspires me to move forward and reach all of my goals."
"Before I came to Wagner, I know that I wanted to major in philosophy as a preparation for going to law school. I also loved Spanish, so as a first-year student, I took the Learning Community that combined philosophy and Spanish. We worked in the Spanish-speaking community, and I wrote a paper about our moral obligations to learners. That really shaped the way I think about civic engagement issues of social justice, and it pushed me toward the trajectory of public interest law."
"Through Wagner, I got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work for a former president, as an intern in the scheduling department of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. It gave me the chance to take the leadership skills and the communication skills I've learned at Wagner and apply them to nonprofit work. I've also been working with a new women's leadership organization, Take the Lead. Through my Wagner courses and also being abroad, I found my passion for making a difference through the nonprofit sector."
Everyone. Every Year.
MAKE A GIFT.
Our 2013 graduating seniors are eager to share their stories - made possible by the Wagner Fund!
Your gift to the Wagner Fund will give students transformative experiences at Wagner College, like those of Chantya, Kevin, Carley, and James. The Wagner Fund supports the lifeblood of Wagner College - the students. Tuition and fees cover only 70 percent of their journey; gifts to the Wagner Fund fill the gap.
