President's Message

President Dorman

Ever Higher: The Campaign for Westminster College is an important fundraising effort to provide a solid foundation for future growth and continued academic excellence. This $50 million comprehensive campaign has already achieved remarkable success as we near the goal. If you are among the many who have already generously supported this effort, thank you! If not, we hope you will join others in supporting your alma mater and help us bring the campaign to a successful conclusion.

Westminster and her students will benefit through several initiatives serving as the focus of this final stage of the Ever Higher campaign. Whether your philanthropic interests rest in helping to provide current or endowed scholarships; improve our world-class undergraduate research experiences; enhance the beauty of our campus; or support Titan Athletics, there is something here for everyone. Please take a moment to learn about these opportunities as described herein.

Our journey to raise $50 million is nearly complete, and with your support we can get there. Every dollar has gone to improving the Westminster experience—the academic foundation on which you’ve built your career, the backdrop of your college friendships and adventures, and your home away from home.

On behalf of the generations of students who will benefit from your campaign support, many thanks!

Dr. Rick Dorman

Every Dollar Counts

So much has been accomplished, but now we need your support. Every gift, of every size, makes a lasting impact on our community. It’s all part of our proud legacy of giving back. Help out by giving a gift to one or more of the following areas:

Undergraduate Research

The Westminster liberal arts education was the foundation for your career, the start of your next chapter and the basis of your livelihood. Today’s Westminster students learn by doing through collaborative research with faculty and meaningful service-learning opportunities. A gift to the Drinko Center for Experiential Learning, who oversees the funding of undergraduate research, benefits current students and helps to support these academic efforts.

The Westminster Fund Scholarship

Make a lasting impact on the Westminster community and help to reduce academic expenses for students in need. Gifts to the Westminster Fund, the college’s annual giving program, provide annual support for student financial aid, scholarships, academic departments, library resources and athletic programs.

Athletic Facilities & Endowment

DIII, mighty! Show support for the Titans: 25% of Westminster students play on one of our 18 NCAA athletic teams and 60% of students participate in intramural programs. A gift benefiting Westminster Athletics will ensure student needs are met and will work to improve facilities and equipment.

The Gary D. Brown ’71 All-Titan Endowment Fund is yet another opportunity to give, and provides supplemental funding to enhance program quality and the experience of student-athletes across all men’s and women's sports.

Campus Landscaping

What made you fall in love with Westminster on your first visit? Was it our 300 tree-lined acres nestled in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania? Was it the sprawling quads, the historic Gothic architecture, or maybe the brass bell of Old Main chiming? Help us to preserve and further beautify our campus by making a gift toward our Master Landscaping Plan.
