Ways to Give

A Message from Ann Pollina, Head of School Year after year I spend time in conversation with the senior class before they graduate. The number one thing our seniors say should never change is our community. They describe what is precious to them in many ways… the traditions that bind us, not just to each other but to generations past; the size of the school that makes it possible to form ties and friendships to other classes; the main building that holds us together, as one Senior once told me, “like a big hug”. Their connection to their teachers is one of the most often mentioned components of what they have come to treasure. One of the things that distinguishes this community from that of other schools, even other boarding schools where teachers and students come to know each other well, is the amount of time we spend together, one on one, in academic conversations. Yes, many good schools offer “extra help” sessions with teachers, but what Westover does is much richer and deeper than ‘help’. We call it “conference” because it is too awkward to say “A-life-changing-chanceto-learn-how-to-be-a-scholar”, but that is what it really is. These rich conversations remind our students that their ideas are important, help them to become comfortable in dialogues with adults and teach them to speak with authority and confidence. As they move into an increasingly pluralistic world, we hope to invest them with the skill and the responsibility to put their insights on the table, even if the conversation is difficult or the ideas controversial. These young women are the leaders our world needs going forward, and their training begins here, at Westover, thanks to you. As the graph to the right illustrates, this Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover has allowed us not only to withstand a difficult economy, but to continue to grow. We would not be in this position of strength without your continued, generous support.

Westover Student Accomplishments 2012-2013 Academic Year


• Five Westover girls participated in a Crew pilot program associated with Chase Collegiate School in Spring 2013, competing in a “four with coxswain” in six races, including an impressive win over Gunnery, Chase, and Canterbury. • For the second year in a row, Westover students took first place and three other honors at the Connecticut Poetry Society Lynn DeCaro Poetry Contest. Afua Nsiah ’15 was the first place recipient. • In the Swim Team’s fourth season, five swimmers qualified for the New England Division III Championship Finals in three events. • The Sonia Osborn Museum Studies Internship Program (SOMSI) marked its five year anniversary. In Fall 2012 First Head of School Chae Uhm ’13 worked at Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington and presented a research paper on the ballerina paintings of Edgar Degas that are part of the museum’s collection. • Caroline Richardson ’16, a member of the Dance Ensemble, represented Westover in the 2013 Connecticut Classic, a statewide ballet competition sponsored by the Connecticut Dance Alliance held at Westover in March 2013. • Three photography students won Gold Key Awards at the Connecticut Scholastic Art Awards for their photography portfolios, which qualified them for the national award competition. One of them also won the Hartford Art School Scholarship. 3

• Amy Tiong ’14 and Nadia Gribkova ’14 studied filmmaking in a three-month program at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. The two took part in Saturday classes in the Spring Future Artists Programs. It is the second year in a row that two Westover students participated in the selective program. • Twenty-three Westover students earned Advanced Placement Scholar Awards from the College Board in 2013. The AP Scholar Awards recognize high school students who have demonstrated exceptional college-level achievement through AP courses and exams. • Westover played host to the New England Prep School Track Association’s Division III Cross Country Championships in November 2012. It is believed that Westover was the first single-sex school to host the championship, which drew approximately 500 runners representing 23 schools from throughout the region. More than 40 volunteers drawn from Westover’s faculty, staff, and parents staffed the event. • Two members of the Westover Community – student Zulma Dunn ’16 and Kate Seyboth, Director of the School’s Women In Science and Engineering Program (WISE), traveled to Rwanda during Spring Break in March 2013. Zulma and her father volunteered with Gardens for Health International and toured the Maranyundo School for Girls, Westover’s sister school. Kate was also at the Maranyundo School sharing her technical expertise; she returned in June to continue to work with the school’s faculty. • Invest in Girls (IIG) completed its second year with Westover as one of three schools in a pilot program designed to introduce students to the world of finance, investments, and philanthropy. In the third year of the program in 2013-2014, more than 50 Westover students will be taking part in IIG classes. One of the highlights of the program was a tour of the New York Stock Exchange, made possible through a gift from alumna Charlotte Beyer’s Principle Quest Foundation. A past President of the Board of Trustees, Charlotte is a member of the Class of 1965. 4

• Westover student poets were honored by the Connecticut Young Writers Trust Competition, with Ailsa Slater ’13 receiving first place, Kira Hunter ’14 third place, and three other students among the finalists. Riley Boeth ’13 was a National Gold Key winner at the Connecticut Scholastic Poetry Awards, and two students received Regional Silver Keys. • The Connecticut Food Bank presented Westover with its School Action Hero Award in fall 2012 for students’ community service activities on behalf of the food program. As part of the School’s community service program, since April 2006, students have volunteered more than 350 hours by sorting food at the Food Bank’s Waterbury warehouse, taking part in the Greater Waterbury Walk Against Hunger, attending food drives, and picking tens of thousands of apples in orchards for the Food Bank. • Students and faculty participated in a video project sponsored by the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, called the “Moments of Voice for Malala Yousafzai” Video, to honor the Pakistani teenager shot by the Taliban in an assassination attempt because of her advocacy for girls’ education. Westover’s group performed a song called “One Hand, One Heart, One Voice,” written by Marla Truini, Westover’s Theater Program Director. Videography Instructor Kati Eggert created the video from hours of film submitted by 19 schools from across the United States, Canada, and Kenya. • Three members of the Class of 2016 created and submitted a video to the “Girls Impact the World” Film Festival. Their video focuses on various forms of slavery that persist in the world today. The video was one of several created by students in Westover’s World History class. • For the second year in a row, a Westover student was one of three finalists for the Smith College Poetry Prize for High School Girls in New England. This year’s finalist was Nadia Gribkova ’14. 5

Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover will strengthen our foundation and allow us to move boldly forward. Our campaign pillars are endowment and annual funds supporting  community, programs, and daily life. With your support, we are securing and enhancing our intentional community of students and faculty and our unique, forward-thinking, leading-edge programs — the very heart of our school. Students pictured above are two senior Heads of School with the students we welcomed from four new countires for the academic year 2013-2014: (l to r): Farahnaz Afaq (Afghanistan), Tracy Nkulikiyimfura (Tunisia), Anna Chahuneau (France), Sahra Hassan (Somalia), Brianna Bergen (Saudi Arabia) and Nadia Gribkova (Russia). This year, Westover welcomes students from 17 states and 20 countries.


“As we move toward the finish line of the Inspiring Women Campaign, we are so thankful for the continued loyalty of our alumnae, parents, and friends.  So many of you have participated, but we need everyone’s support to reach our goal for Westover’s future strength and success. This final year of the campaign will be both challenging and exciting! We are counting on each of you to stretch a little bit more to help us reach our goal. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your endorsement of Westover’s mission to educate and inspire girls today. It is a privilege to serve as the co-chairs of this campaign.” Martha Bacon Martin ’65 and David Martin, Co-Chairs of the Inspiring Women Campaign

Faculty Support


• Westover was able to sustain raises for faculty during difficult economic times when other schools were not only holding pay raises, but also actually cutting back on faculty.

• Because of the generous support of the Annual Fund, Westover has updated and renovated several classrooms throughout our historic campus, including providing the technology necessary for our flipped classrooms, and the addition of white boards and smart board technology.

• Because of the Campaign, Westover was able to both retain and hire teachers with advanced degrees: 2008 – 2009 = 44% 2009 – 2010 = 50% 2010 – 2011 = 57% 2011 – 2012 = 61% 2012 – 2013 = 63%

Support From Alumnae

• Alumnae contributed $1,070,052 to the Annual Fund in 2012-2013, the highest amount ever donated by alumnae in one fiscal year.

2013 – 2014 = 67%

Student Support • A sustained, strong commitment to Financial Aid allows us to stretch to meet the needs of our families. Many funds this past year went to keep students at Westover, increasing awards to some families and granting awards to families who in the past did not need aid.

The Campaign is raising funds in the following areas:

• With the completion of the Campaign, we will continue to commit to a diverse socioeconomic student body, allowing us to bring the best candidates to our school.

Campus Stewardship daily life

$10 million

community $25 million

programs $10 million

• With a combination of solar panels and a new cogeneration system, 70% of the electric energy used by the School is generated on campus. • Westover’s campus and grounds have always been one of the School’s greatest assets, its lawns, fields, and woodlands often used by teachers and students as a living laboratory for science classes, a source of inspiration for art classes, and a quiet space for reflection and study. One of the goals of the Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover is to support Campus Stewardship and Sustainability; $5 million from the Campaign will be allocated to preserve and maintain the campus, as well as increase the School’s sustainability and green initiatives.

• Since the beginning of the Campaign, we have reached our Annual Fund goal every year. This is a true testament to the loyalty and generosity of our alumnae.

Programs • Because of the support of the Campaign, Westover is able to continue to develop our signature programs. In the 2012-2013 academic year, 50% of Westover students participated in one of the following signature programs: Manhattan School of Music, Women in Science and Engineering, the Online School, and our Global Exchange Programs. • The Women in Science and Engineering program continues to produce amazing results, particularly with our sophomore students who take the AP Computer Science exam. In the state of Connecticut, Westover produced 21% of female students with the highest score (5).

Unrestricted • Because of the generosity of unrestricted gifts, Westover was able to develop new athletics programs in crew, cross country, and swimming. • Westover launched a new program in Technical Theater. Technical Theater Apprentices receive “on the job” training including set building, lighting design, sound design and mixing, and involvement in campus events which require running audio systems and video production. Over the past three years of the program over 30 girls have enrolled.


In May 2013, ten Westover students (mostly sophomores) took the AP Computer Science exam; four earned the highest score, 5; six earned the next highest, 4. 2013 AP Computer Science Mean: Westover Mean: 4.4 National Mean: 3.2 National Mean for Girls: 3.03 Connecticut Mean: 3.29 Connecticut Mean for Girls: 3.11 Among girls in Connecticut taking the AP Computer Science exam in 2013 : • Westover students represented 21.05% of those receiving scores of 5. • Westover students scored 17.86% of the passing grades. • Westover students were 11.24% of all the girls taking the exam in Connecticut.


“Our students work unbelievably hard and they don’t shy away from challenges. I often throw tough assignments at them just to see how far they will get, and they consistently amaze me.”

Kate Seyboth – Director of Women In Science & Engineering (WISE)

• Joined Westover’s Faculty in 2006 • Teaches classes in WISE and Mathematics • Coaches Cross Country and Swim teams • Robotics Team Advisor, Gay Straight Alliance Advisor • Tufts University, B.S. & M.S. in Computer Science

When parents, alumnae, and other visitors come to Westover these days, they often comment on the vibrant energy and enthusiasm of the students they encounter that seems to fill every corner of the campus, from classrooms to playing fields, from dormitory corridors to meeting spaces. Faculty members like Kate are the nurturers of that energy and enthusiasm. Now in her eighth year as Director of the WISE Program, Kate has seen firsthand what Westover students are capable of doing when they are called upon to excel. The results are impressive. In May 2013, 10 Westover students (most as sophomores) earned top scores on the AP Computer Science exam; four of them received 5s and six received 4s – scores that will earn the students college credit with honors. Enrollment in WISE is at its highest level since the program was founded two decades ago. Kate and her fellow WISE teachers Jana Dunbar and Ben Hildebrand offer a range of science and engineering courses to their students. “One of the things I love is that the three of us have different specialties and interests, so we are able to offer a really broad range of upper-level electives,” Kate explained. A programming course teaches students how to create iPhone apps from scratch; an engineering class will have them constructing their own trebuchets (ancient catapult-like machines) that will toss pumpkins across a playing field; a course in forensics will have students investigating mock crime scenes. This year Kate is the advisor for the newly formed Robotics Team, founded on their own initiative by students. The team plans to enter the robot they are constructing in state competitions later in the school year. Kate admits that she herself is a novice at robotics, but the students are taking the lead. “They tell me what they need and I try to help,” Kate said. “They are incredibly resourceful.” Kate sees that same determination outside the classroom. She has seen students push themselves on both the Cross Country and Swim teams she coaches to regional team and individual honors. On both of the teams, she noted, “We have students join with no previous experience, but because they work hard they see vast improvement in their results.” 9

A Musical Tradition, Steadfast but Evolving

Stephanie & Bob

“Westover is unique in that every student gets a chance to take part in the performing arts in some way – if not Glee Club, then handbells, music lessons, theater productions, or music courses. Even if you aren’t the best, you have the opportunity to try it out and see what you are capable of doing, sometimes in surprising ways.” Stephanie Crudele ’14 First Head of Glee Club; First Head of Chantarelle, an a capella singing group, as a junior; member of Glee Club and Chantarelle all four years; cast member of annual musical all four years; nominated for a Halo Award for Best Comedic Performance by a Female for her role in Legally Blonde; Co-Head of Women’s Rights Club

Bob has worked closely with Stephanie throughout her years at Westover. During her freshman year, he served as her faculty advisor. Now, as First Head of Glee, Stephanie often assists Bob by leading sectional rehearsals. The tradition of music, especially the tradition of singing, has been a part of Westover since the School’s founding. “But what I think is true of all traditions is that it cannot remain static,” Bob said. “The students have to be actively involved in the process and make it their own.” So over the decades, some pieces have replaced others in the Glee Club canon. That being said, Bob noted that Felix Mendelssohn’s “Lift Thine Eyes,” sung by the Glee Club for over a century, remains one of the favorite pieces for 10 the students to perform each year.

The School’s commitment to music and the performing arts was one of the main reasons Stephanie wanted to attend Westover. “I feel that I am really lucky to be at a place where we set aside a time several days a week when we only have Glee Club rehearsal scheduled,” she explained. Even for students who don’t sing in Glee or the School’s other musical ensembles, Stephanie added, so many of the School’s most beloved traditions – Candlelight Services, traditional songs around the West, Over, and Senior trees in Quad, the Lantern Ceremony – all have music woven into the experience.

We are pleased to present the next in a series of student and faculty profiles illustrating the foundations of our Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover. These are the women of Westover – and their inspiring teachers.

“Music – and this is especially true of singing – is one activity that draws upon the whole person. You are using your body, of course, to help produce the music, but you are also using your mind and getting in touch with your spirit in the process of creating the music. It’s an activity that is universal in that way.” Robert Havery, Director of Music Member of Westover Faculty since 1968 as Director of Music; Chair of Arts Department since 1994; Instructor in Music & Humanities; Minister of Music at St. John’s Parish in Waterbury, CT; founding member of the Everyman Guild; a member of the Yale Camarata; Juilliard School of Music, B.Music & M.S.


Invest & Inspire


Charlotte Beyer ’65: Inspiring Generations of Donors Why do I invest in Westover? Charlotte B. Beyer ’65 has long been recognized as a wise and generous supporter for Westover, not only as a Past President of the School’s Board of Trustees and as an impassioned, eloquent advocate for girls’ education, but also as an entrepreneur who, after spending 20 years on Wall Street, founded the Institute for Private Investors in 1991. In September, she shared her philanthropic motivation at a campaign donor recognition event hosted by Nevitt Nugent Jenkins ’67 and Betsy Darling White ’57 in New York City.

I see first hand what a Westover education fosters. When 40 Westover girls came to Wall Street last winter, we had lunch at the Downtown Association, then we went onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I watched with admiration and pride as the Westover girls asked terrific questions and displayed such curiosity and intelligence. These girls were from all over – from Bejing, China, to Waterbury, CT. During our lunch I had them puzzle over how to stop a bank run as I showed them the front page of The Wall Street Journal that day showing long lines outside the bank in Cyprus. Through their thoughtful responses, these young women demonstrated all the best of what Westover provides. The School has been blessed with generations of inspiring women. Two, in particular, have influenced my philanthropy. I recall the wise words of past President of the Board of Trustees, Anita Packard Montgomery ’47, who plainly told me to “step up” and Pat Castles Acheson ’42, also a past President of the Board of Trustees, who said “it’s your turn now.” Just like these women, I have a responsibility to inspire the next generation of Westover supporters. Author Mary Hiles writes, “The art of paying attention is vital to human life. Attention is the way we love. We might say what we pay attention to is what we love. When someone pays attention to us, we feel not just heard, but loved. To be loved is to sense another stretching out toward us fully here and nowhere else. When someone remains present when we are talking, no matter how stumblingly or ineloquently, this is love. To love and be inattentive is a contradiction. To love is to attend, to attend is to love.” The faculty and leadership of Westover in Ann Pollina illustrate this definition perfectly, and that is why I invest, and by investing, hope to inspire.

Throughout her relationship with Westover, Charlotte has made philanthropic commitments to various Westover projects and initiatives, including more than $150,000 to the Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover. In August 2011 Charlotte was featured in The Wall Street Journal as “Donor of the Day”, a profile of philanthropists and major donors to charities in the New York region. 13


Invest & Inspire

Providing Now and for the Future We give to the Annual Fund because Westover has given our daughter Sarah so much: lifelong friendships with amazing girls from a wide range of incredible backgrounds, confidence that comes Sarkis and Giselle Boyadjian, parents from working in a strong of Sarah ’12; Giselle is the Director of Westover’s Library and Sarkis is academic environment the Chair of Westover’s Mathematics where girls really strive to Department be successful, and great learning relationships with committed and hard-working faculty that she can build on as she continues to follow her dreams and passions in college. We hope to support the next generation of Westover girls so that they will have the same opportunities that Sarah had. – Giselle Boyadjian (P’12)

The first time you visit Westover you recognize the special environment that your daughters will have to develop friendships, the opportunities for education and learning, Brian Jones and his wife Xue Hui, and the sense of parents of Fiona ’15 and Briana ’17 community that allows each young girl to become a leader not only within the School, but in her own community and in her future. Westover School is a special place and both of my daughters recognize this unique opportunity they have been given to attend, to learn, and to grow at Westover. Our contributions to Westover ensure that this success not only continues today but also for future generations at Westover. – Brian Jones (P’15, ’17) 15


Inspiring Leadership This past May, I had the pleasure and honor of giving the Commencement Address at the Class of 2013’s graduation. In my closing words to the graduating seniors I said:

From left: Head of School Ann Pollina, Trustee President Francene Young ’71, Alumnae Association President Ann Clark Priftis ’96

Yes, I believe that life is a journey where you have to choose to play an active part. To know when the challenges are real and how to deal with them and to recognize when you have created your own challenges and how to get out of your own way and not blame others.

On this journey, when you fall, get up, reach out to others when you need help and offer a hand when they need help … And by taking with you into the world this supportive community that you created at Westover, you will be able to provide each other a network of support as you travel on your individual paths.

This Annual Report reflects the example that has been set by alumnae, parents, and friends of Westover in taking on an active role to foster and sustain the supportive community that is Westover. Thanks to your generosity, you truly exemplify the underlying meaning of our Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover. Francene Young ’71, Board of Trustees President

A gift to the Annual Fund is a gift to the Inspiring Women: Campaign for Women and with $3 million left to raise in just over a year, our Board of Governors is focused on finding creative ways to engage detached alumnae and developing compelling reasons for active alumnae to maintain and/or increase their involvement with the School. Our Board encourages you to ask yourself the same important question we’ve asked ourselves as Governors: What can I do to help Westover achieve its goals and live its mission? We urge you to share your passion for Westover with colleagues, friends, and family. Use your personal and professional networks and skills to advocate for the School. Tap into your unique set of gifts and strengths to help the School reach its goals. Ann Clark Priftis ’96, Alumnae Association Board of Governors President


Q · The Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover is a comprehensive campaign. What does this mean?

Q · During the campaign, will people be asked to support Westover Ways to be Involved... through a gift to both the Annual Fund and the endowment?

A · A comprehensive campaign is one that includes both the Annual Fund and the endowment. Throughout the duration of the campaign every gift is considered a campaign gift.

A · This campaign is two pronged: Annual Fund and Endowment. For example, making a $250 gift to the Annual Fund from your checking account and then a $250 gift to Endowment for your savings account each year for five years would make you a $2,500 donor to the campaign!

Q · What’s the difference between the Annual Fund and the endowment, and how do they fit into the campaign? A · Think of the endowment as a savings account—you’re able to use the income that it generates to either spend when you need it or invest it in the future. The Annual Fund, on the other hand, provides the cash that Westover uses each year to support the operating budget. Westover would need another $30 million in endowment to generate what the $1.5 million raised in our Annual Fund every year. This is why the campaign is so important, because both of these funds work together. Q · Why is increasing the endowment so important to Westover? A · The endowment supports the long-term sustainability of the School. If Westover is to be here 100 years from now and continue to attract the most talented students and faculty and support them, we need an endowment to sustain us in both strong and challenging economic times. At a time when technology is changing the world at a rapid pace, a strong endowment gives Westover the flexibility to adapt to changing needs. Q · How long will this effort be under way? A · All gifts and pledges received by 12/31/14 will count toward the Inspiring Women Campaign for Westover. 18

Q · What specific areas of the school will benefit from the campaign? A · The campaign is about people—it will support the enrichment of faculty and students in all ways; and campaigns that support people—the lifeblood of the institution—are essential to delivering a superb education. Q · How do I become involved? A · If you have never given, give now! If you are a lapsed donor, come back on board! If you are a regular donor, we thank you and ask you to consider increasing your gift. Q · Does my reunion gift count towards the IWC? A · Yes, reunion gifts count towards the Inspiring Women Campaign. Your reunion is the perfect opportunity to stretch your philanthropy to new levels. We hope that beginning with your reunion during the Inspiring Woman Campaign, you will consider a larger gift to Westover and continue this stretch going forward.

Ways To Be Involved Many thanks to everyone who has supported the Campaign so far! As we race toward the finish line, we need your continued support. $42M

Some BEQUEST INTENTIONS by living alumnae COUNT towards Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover! In order to expand opportunities for more Westover alumnae participation in our current Campaign, in October 2011 the Board of Trustees amended the existing Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover counting policy to include some bequest intentions by living alumnae. Accordingly, if you are 80 years old or more, OR you will reach your 80th birthday on or before December 31, 2014, the full face value of any bequest you make to Westover (that is verified in writing) will count towards your gift to Westover’s Campaign! Also, if you have your 50th or 55th reunion in 2014 the full face value of any verified bequest you make during your reunion year will count towards your gift to Westover’s Campaign.

For the purpose of continuity, we have listed all alumnae donors by class name unless otherwise requested. If you would like to be recognized differently in future publications, kindly contact our office with your request.


We have made every effort to insure that the information in this report is current and accurate. In the event that we have made an error, please accept our apology and contact the Development Office directly at 203.577.4646.

“Before I joined the Board of Governors I gave to the Annual Fund out of a basic desire to show my support for Westover. As I’ve learned more about the Annual Fund, my giving, and encouraging others to give, has taken on more importance. The Annual Fund provides the operating support that allows the School to offer scholarships to create a socioeconomically diverse campus, to outfit the soccer team in new jerseys as they take the field against Porter’s, and to refurbish the dorms that current students call home and that attracts future students and their parents. I know that supporting the Annual Fund isn’t just a way of showing support, it’s essential to supporting Westover.” Maura Tansley ’00, member, Board of Governors, & chair, Annual Fund Committee

“I give to Westover because at Westover, and I quote their admissions material, ‘Ideas of what a woman should or should not be do not exist here.’ I’ve torn out the quote and placed it on my desk for inspiration, for finding my voice as a researcher and as a teacher. I give because I know that Westover women stand with me in facing the challenges of a professional woman in male-dominated professions” Katherine Sredl, Ph.D. ’91 member, Board of Governors & Annual Fund Committee

Westover’s Named Endowment Funds Westover is pleased to announce the establishment of two new endowed funds: • The Endowed Fund for Faculty Support in Honor of Trustee Leadership Established October 2012 in honor of Louisa Jones Palmer ’54 This fund was initiated with a generous gift from an anonymous donor and is supported by Louisa’s trustee colleagues, alumnae, family, and friends. It celebrates her leadership and dedicated service as President of the Westover Board of Trustees from 2003 – 2012. This fund will provide ongoing support for the faculty as part of the Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover. • The Martin and Brown Endowed Fund for Blended Learning Established June 2013 through a generous matching gift from Jennifer Martin ’66. This fund allows Westover to continue the work we have begun through Blended Learning, defined as pedagogical techniques based on the combination of advanced online learning techniques with traditional face-to-face classroom teaching. This grant allows us the opportunity to build an internal support structure to address professional development requirements and ongoing needs of our faculty through innovation and collaboration.

There are Many Ways to Give to Westover! If you think making a substantial gift to Westover is beyond your reach, please take the time to read about some creative ways to give to Westover. You may be surprised!

Gifts of Cash

Please make your checks payable to Westover School and send them directly to the Development Office. You may also make credit card gifts on our secure on-line giving site at, or by phone or mail.

Matching Gifts

Many employers and companies will match gifts made by an employee or a spouse. Inquire with your employer today!


Securities are stocks and bonds. Direct gifts of appreciated securities offer one huge advantage to you as a donor – you get an income tax deduction for the full market value of the security when you give it to Westover, regardless of your cost basis. You do not have to pay capital gains taxes on the appreciated value of the security, as you would were you to sell the security and then give the proceeds to Westover, or use them for any other purpose.


A bequest to Westover is a statement in your will that you wish to leave something to Westover, usually described as an amount, a specific asset or percentage of your estate. A bequest is something everyone who wishes to support Westover can do, with no current cost and at a level of their own choosing. Though simple, bequests are powerful giving tools.

Charitable Gift Annuities

A charitable gift annuity is a contract between you and Westover. In exchange for a gift of $10,000 or more, Westover agrees to pay you, and/or other beneficiaries you choose, a fixed amount every quarter for life. Payments are guaranteed and amounts are fixed. There can be no more than two beneficiaries, usually the donor and her spouse.

Life Insurance

Many people have life insurance policies – either fully paid for or not – that are less important to them than they once were. To make a gift of an existing policy, you must change the owner and beneficiary of the policy to Westover. When you do, you immediately qualify for an income tax deduction for the policy’s cost basis or cash surrender value, whichever is less.

For more information on any of these gift opportunities, please call Paul Sutherland, Director of Planned Giving at 203.577.4590 or email, Some BEQUEST INTENTIONS by living alumnae COUNT towards Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover! In order to expand opportunities for more Westover alumnae participation in our current Campaign, in October 2011 the Board of Trustees amended the existing Inspiring Women: Campaign for Westover counting policy to include some bequest intentions by living alumnae. Accordingly, if you are 80 years old or more, OR you will reach your 80th birthday on or before December 31, 2014, the full face value of any bequest you make to Westover (that is verified in writing) will count towards your gift to Westover’s Campaign! Also, if you have your 50th, 55th, or 60th reunion between now and 2014 the full face value of any verified bequest you make during your reunion year will count towards your gift to Westover’s Campaign.

Basing their conference system on a collegiate model, Westover teachers offer on average at least 1 1/2 office hours daily. Students are encouraged, and in some courses required, to meet with their teachers one-on-one to develop ideas, hone writing skills, seek extra help, or simply engage in intellectual dialogue outside of the classroom. This kind of student-faculty interaction not only fosters the engaging exchange of ideas at the heart of Westover’s curriculum but also develops a student’s skills in response to the individualized, one-on-one feedback conferences allow. At the core of this practice of conferences is the strong belief in our students’ ability to develop themselves as learners and scholars, who conduct themselves seriously in intellectual discourse with not only their peers but adults as well. Many Westover graduates tell us that, compared to their peers, they are much more engaged in their college studies because they make regular, effective use of their professors’ office hours, thereby developing deeper and more lasting relationships with their academic mentors because of their experiences here at Westover.
