The Westminster Endowment
Our most critical strategic asset, The Westminster Endowment is comprised of nearly 200 individual funds, each one a gift to the School from those deeply committed to Westminster’s mission and purpose. The Investment Committee of the Board of Trustees carefully manages these funds to meet current operational needs while protecting the gift of a Westminster education for generations to come.
We are happy to help you make a gift to Westminster that is meaningful to both you and the School. Please contact Lauren Flores, Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement, at 404-609-6438.
