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.

    It’s easy to enroll with a credit card using the safe and secure online form

    How it works
    • You determine the amount of your donation.
    • Westminster will charge the gift to your credit card on (or about) the 15th of every month.
    • Your gift will automatically renew each year.
    • Your online donation is secure and flexible and, while your gift is active, you will receive fewer requests for your support throughout the year.

    If you are currently enrolled, and this gift method no longer meet your needs, contact Hilary Burrall at (860) 408-3027 or
  • Matching Gifts

    You can maximize your charitable contribution to Westminster School through a special benefit many companies and foundations offer their employees, retirees, spouses of the employee and board members: matching gifts.

    Through matching gift programs, many companies allow the opportunity to multiply the impact of personal contributions. If your company or foundation sponsors a matching gift program, you can easily increase the impact your gift will have on students, faculty, and programs on Williams Hill. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar. Some will even double—or triple—match a gift.

    Begin by checking to see if your employer or foundation has a matching gift program, applicable gift ratios and procedures.

    Westminster’s Tax ID number is 06-0646960

    If matching registration is online, email the matching confirmation number to Or, mail your completed matching form to Westminster with your donation at the address below.
