Once again, The Westmont Fund has exceeded its goal. Gifts during the 1998– 99 fiscal year (July– June) totaled $1,673,879, which is $323,879 or 24 percent above the target.
Alumni, parents, and friends of the college contribute to The Westmont Fund, as do foundations, corporations, and churches. Some donors designate their gifts for specific purposes, such as Reynolds Gallery or sports scholarships.
As the basic building block of the college’s fund-raising program, The West-mont Fund helps increase the number of donors and total giving. In four short years, the goal has increased 42 percent, from $950,000 in 1995–96 to $1,350,000 in 1998–99.
