Class Donations

       At the close of our reunion year we wanted to ask you to join us in making a gift to Westminster. This reunion year we hope that every member of our class will make a contribution in honor of the great Class of 1980 towards one of our areas of focus by June 30, the end of the 2009-2010 fundraising year. Each of these funds is vital to the school and provides us with an opportunity to enable Westminster to support tomorrow’s graduates.
  • 2009-10 Westminster Fund (Annual Fund) – Gifts to The Westminster Fund are typically unrestricted and are used immediately to support the highest priorities of the school. The Westminster Fund makes up about 7% of the school’s operating budget each year.
  • Gwen Cleghorn Distinguished Chair and Faculty Fund – Westminster seeks to honor Gwen Cleghorn by creating the Gwen Cleghorn Distinguished Faculty Chair and the Gwen Cleghorn Fund. The school has received a $1 million challenge gift to raise an additional $1 million to fund this permanent recognition of Gwen’s service to the school and its students. Every dollar given will be matched, up to $1 million. This initiative will generate the $1.5 million Gwen Cleghorn Distinguished Chair and the $500,000 Gwen Cleghorn Faculty Fund.
        Every gift, no matter the size, is important to Westminster and to our class. To make a gift or pledge, please return the enclosed pledge form or, to make a gift online, visit the websites above. All dollars committed this year will count towards Westminster’s Teaching for Tomorrow campaign. 
Thanks for joining us in this challenge; we look forward to keeping in touch.
