Giving Tuesday a Success

Inspired by Giving Tuesday, a donor pledged $50,000 to double the impact of gifts to the Westmont Fund for one week, November 21-28. 

The outpouring of support from alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends helped Westmont blow past the goal! Supporters gave more than $64,000 to ensure Westmont could secure the entire challenge gift to benefit students. In one week alone, the community made it possible to direct $114,000 to the Westmont Fund, vital to student scholarships. This generosity speaks volumes to the strength of this community and shared desire to remove financial obstacles for students seeking a transformative, Christian liberal arts education. On behalf of students and an extraordinary learning community, and from the bottom of our hearts... Thank you to all who made the day a success!
