Ways to Make Your Gift
Philanthropy supports many different areas of the school, from the care of our beautiful campus and updated technology, to teacher professional development and program materials, to financial aid and athletics and much more.
We are pleased to announce that our generous Westtown School community contributed more than $10.8 million to Westtown during our 2020-2021 fiscal year. This is a record for philanthropic support at Westtown!
Contributions to the Westtown Fund, operations, endowed funds, and capital projects are critical to our fiscal sustainability, and support the work we do in every part of the school. Each dollar raised enhances student programs and provides opportunities for students to engage in inquiry, problem-solving, in collaboration with their peers and faculty.
We extend heartfelt gratitude to our donors who demonstrated their dedication and commitment to Westtown and their passion for our mission and values. We deeply appreciate every donor, volunteer, and community member who helped us advance our vision, and we are sincerely grateful for your philanthropic support.
Thank you, Westonians!
The Westtown Fund
In the classroom, on the field, in the theater, and on dorm, the Westtown Fund supports our students – from Primary Circle to the senior class – with opportunities to expand their intellectual and personal growth. The impact of the Westtown Fund is seen in our excellent faculty, our innovative programs, our beautiful campus and above all else, in every student, every day.
When you make a gift to create or add to an endowed fund, you provide a critical and meaningful resource to Westtown School for the school to use now and in the future. Donors may create an endowed fund or give to a current fund such as the Kassemeyer Full Access Fund, the Faith and Practice Funds, or to an endowed fund of their choice.
A class’ reunion gift is the total of all gifts made to the Westtown Fund in the fiscal year of their reunion. While all classes celebrating milestone reunions are asked to make a special effort to support the Westtown Fund, classes celebrating their 50th reunion may make a capital gift to the school for a special project or endowed fund.
Westtown is thankful to the foresight of dedicated alumni/ae/x and friends whose planned gifts provide resources that create extraordinary opportunities for future students and faculty. With thoughtful planning you can create win-win solutions for you and Westtown School including giving stock and realizing large savings, and creating opportunities to pass more on to your heirs.
Westtown provides a range of philanthropic opportunities for businesses to financially support our students. Each partnership builds Westtown’s resources and markets the charitable support to potential clients.
PA EITC Program
PA EITC Program
Turn your Pennsylvania tax dollars into transformative scholarships for Westtown students. The Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program allows businesses and individuals who operate and pay taxes in Pennsylvania to redirect a portion of their tax liability to Westtown School as a philanthropic gift for financial aid.
We are thankful for those who gave to Westtown while I was a student, making opportunities possible that may not have been possible otherwise. We feel good about supporting Westtown today to give others those same opportunities, and we know that any donation, no matter the size, helps to support another student’s Westtown experience.
