Recognizing our Loyal and Generous Donors
Westover’s giving societies recognize and celebrate especially generous and leadership-level giving. From recent graduates who stretch to make a gift, to alumni, friends, parents, faculty, and staff who make larger gifts, to the handful of philanthropists who make transformational gifts, all these giving society members play a tremendous role in Westover’s success.

Does your employer match charitable gifts? Many companies will match the charitable gift of an employee (or an employee's spouse!), but the donor must initiate the process.
Please contact your Human Resources department for more information.
Gifts of Securities & Wire Transfers
Donating appreciated securities that you have owned for more than a year could entitle you to an income-tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the gift and avoidance for federal capital-gains tax on the transfer.
For more information about giving securities you or your broker may e-mail Eileen McCormack at email@example.com or call her at 203.577.4658.
Gifts to the Westover Fund help cover the 39% gap between revenue received from tuition and the full cost of educating a Westover student. Our fundraising goal is $1.4 million for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017.
Last year, Alumnae contributions accounted for 75% of the Westover Fund's annual giving revenue! These gifts supported core programs, financial aid, faculty salaries, classroom supplies and the upkeep of our beautiful campus.
There is strength in numbers – many gifts add up to a large sum! Give now at a level that is meaningful for you. Consider the monthly recurring gift option if you would like to grow your annual giving to Westover while maintaining a level monthly budget.
Your gift is an investment in a life-changing experience and will provide a wide range of opportunities for smart, motivated girls to grow and achieve within a connected, supportive community. We are grateful for your support.
