You Passed Your Light

Together, Tigers gave more than $113,292,118.45 during our Having Light: The Campaign for Wittenberg University — more than any fundraising campaign in our history. Every single donor became part of something bigger, so much so that we exceeded our goal by more than $13 million. Because of the generosity shown, lives have been changed, the skyline of Springfield has transformed, and the academic enterprise has been elevated, along with every facet of the Wittenberg experience.

Stats That Shine

Together, we exceeded expectations to support all that defines us: the people, who inquire, create, and compete here; the place, where we gather as a community and welcome others to learn and grow; and the present, when the next generation of Wittenberg graduates learns to pass on its light.

In Their Own Words

“'Having light' means different things to different people. Light can mean passion, talent, knowledge, wisdom, a divine spark, or the light of grace. Our light is our legacy. Thank you for sharing yours."
