For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
- Luke 12:34
For over 50 years God has faithfully touched the hearts of countless individuals, organizations, and families in our community to meet the financial needs of our school. We recognize that it is by His grace that we are able to provide Biblical instruction, Christian discipleship, and excellent academics to our students.
We aspire to be financially accessible to a wide range of Christian families. This means we use tuition and fees to meet the operational needs of the school. We rely on Annual Fund donations to fund our buildings and cover the cost of additional programs and improvements. Our Annual Fund "One Ask. One Gift." occurs from September until November of each new school year.

Gifts of personal property including rare books, works of art, valuable collectibles, and tangible items of demonstrable value, in some cases may enable you to make a significant gift to support Westminster with outstanding tax benefits to you. Likewise, gifts of intangible personal property, such as copyrights, patents, and mineral rights, can generate income for the program of your choice on a continuing basis.
Gifts of real estate include personal residences, second homes, income property, and vacant land, which offer a wide variety of tax and other benefits. Whereas most people give their entire interest away, it is also possible to give only a portion of the property (an undivided percentage interest) while retaining the rest for other purposes.
Gifts of securities, stocks, and bonds
Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bond also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred to WCA before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a two-fold tax benefit, creating an income tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due upon their sale.
Matching Gift Programs
Matching Gift Programs are an easy way to double your donation to Westminster. Find out if your company has a matching gift program. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees' personal philanthropy. Simply obtain a matching gift form from your employer's personnel office, fill it out, and provide it to WCA with your contribution.
Endowments provide security over the long term by expanding Westminster's permanent financial base and creating a predictable source of future income for such things as endowed faculty positions, financial assistance, facilities, or even entire academic programs.
