Ways to Give

Your Support is Critical

With the help of alumni, parents and friends, through outright annual and capital gifts or planned giving, Westminster will be able to secure its firm financial footing for the future and be able to preserve the special qualities that have distinguished the school and its students for more than a century — qualities that have made such a profound and enduring difference in so many lives. Westminster does not seek to become something different, but rather a stronger version of itself. It is a big goal. It is a worthy goal. It is deserving of your help.

  • Outright Gifts from an IRA

    Do you have an IRA? Are you 70½ years old or older? Are you interested in a more tax efficient way (than cash) to support Westminster School?

    If yes, ask your IRA administrator to send a gift directly from your IRA to Westminster School. The withdrawal is tax-free and if you have a Required Minimum Distribution or RMD, this type of gift can count towards your RMD. You may direct your gift to the program or area of your choice and have an immediate impact on Westminster School.

    This type of gift is called a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD (sometimes called an “IRA Charitable Rollover”).
