Transformational Gift for Student Support Announced

Curtis Brockelman ’86, P’19, chair of Westminster’s Soar Together Campaign, announced Jan. 5 a transformational gift of $5 million to the campaign from a small group of alumni, parents and trustees to create the Jenny and Bill Philip Student Support Fund. The fund honors the legacy of Head of School Bill Philip and Jenny Philip P’06, ’09, who will be departing Westminster at the end of June.
The fund will impact and support the experience of students receiving need-based financial aid at Westminster by helping to underwrite academic, technological and extracurricular supplies; tutoring and counseling; off-campus athletic, arts and academic trips; allowances to enjoy activities with friends; and family travel to campus events. The fund will also help Westminster compete with peer schools by diminishing financial obstacles for those promising students who can take full advantage of all that the school has to offer.
