The Westminster Fund

The success of The Westminster Fund depends on the collective generosity of our alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends of the school. Every gift we receive – whether $25 or $25,000 – makes a difference on Williams Hill.

The unrestricted, current use dollars given through The Westminster Fund are essential to maintaining daily operations at the school and underwrite nearly 10% of the annual operating budget. In addition to supporting financial aid and faculty salaries, The Westminster Fund expands learning opportunities within the classroom and beyond the Hill, and provides for the components that enhance programs and activities in our community – whether that be team uniforms, dramat costumes, corridor feeds or music lessons.

Volunteers are vital to our success and Westminster is fortunate to have many in our community who support us with their time and talents, including 30 members of our Board of Trustees, 27 Executive Committee members, 48 families on the Parents Committee, and 287 Class Agents. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, please contact Hilary Burrall.

The Westminster Fund closes on June 30th. Your participation is greatly appreciated!
