The Westover Fund

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 $1.45 million for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2019.

Gifts to the Westover Fund support core programs, financial aid, faculty professional development, 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. Contact Nancy Pelaez at 203.577.4593.

Matching Gifts

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

Your gift of appreciated stock, either to the Westover Fund or to Westover's Endowment, can work to benefit the donor as well as Westover.

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 Sandra Wilson or call her at 203.577.4658.
