The Wilmette Institute Exceeds Fund-Raising Goal with Help from Online Contributions

Checks, online contributions, and pledges continue to come into the Wilmette Institute to support its $15,000 scholarship goal for the fiscal year. We have now received $18,450 in gifts and pledges, which exceeds our goal and provides resources for projects that are on hold! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so generously.

It is now possible to contribute to the Wilmette Institute online, if you are a Bahá’í residing in the lower forty-eight United States. Here are the simple steps:
