The Westminster Fund

As a Westminster College alumnus, your continued support is crucial. Your gift to The Westminster Fund provides for:

• Merit and Need-based Scholarships
• Lab Equipment and Supplies
• Books and Instructional Materials
• Undergraduate Research Opportunities
• Technology Upgrades
• Faculty Development

We strongly encourage you to make a donation – not only because it will help current students, but also because it will increase our alumni participation rate. This is the percentage of alumni who provide financial contributions to the college during the year - it measures the NUMBER of graduates who give rather than the amount that you give. Even a $5 gift makes a difference!

Why is the alumni participation rate so very important to you and to the college? U.S.News & World Report and other organizations use the alumni participation rate as the ONLY indicator of alumni satisfaction when annual rankings of colleges and universities are published. As our ranking increases, the value of your degree increases as well. Many foundations consider a college’s alumni participation rate when awarding grants. With a low alumni participation rate, Westminster College’s eligibility or qualification for grant monies may be lost.

Westminster College aspires to national prominence. To achieve that goal, the alumni participation rate must increase to that of similar educational institutions.

You Think Your Gift Won't Matter? Think Again! Your commitment and annual participation – at any level – are vital to Westminster’s continued success. Our unique environment for learning depends on the support of Everyone, Every Year. It has never been easier to make a gift - just click here.
