The Westminster Fund

The Westminster Fund The Westminster Fund gives the university the vital flexibility to allocate resources where they are most needed during the current academic year.

In the belief that a choir of volunteer singers could be trained to perform on a professional level, John Finley Williamson established the Westminster Choir in 1920 at the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Dayton, Ohio. The national prominence achieved by this choir and Dr. Williamson’s conviction that churches could best be served by dedicated, professionally trained musicians led him to found Westminster Choir School at the Dayton church in 1926. Graduates of the original three-year program were called “ministers of music,” a term of reference recognized nationally today.

Mission: The Westminster Fund is the backbone of institutional support at Westminster Choir College. Unrestricted gifts to The Westminster Fund allow the College to respond to immediate needs and opportunities. Because The Westminster Fund is used to assist the operating budget, gifts help alleviate the need for even larger tuition increases that have been required in recent years, it helps underwrite the day to day expenses of operating the College, including enhancing the campus environment, expanding student programs, increasing financial aid opportunities as strengthening faculty salaries. The Westminster Fund is also a measure of alumni satisfaction. It can indicate a lot about how our alumni, parents and friends perceive the College. The health of The Westminster Fund is also considered by corporations and foundations who are considering supporting the College. The more successful The Westminster Fund is and the more alumni who participate, the more likely we are to receive private support from large corporations and foundations.

"Westminster Choir College continues to develop my foundation and artistic potential to help turn my dreams into realities. As a sophomore Voice Performance major, I'm grateful for the support of faculty, administrators and peers, and I'm pleased to call them my Westminster family."

You have the ability to ensure that the Westminster experience remains accessible for future generations of student musicians. I hope you'll consider making a gift to Westminster Choir College to help current and future student performers receive the same life-changing experiences Westminster has offered me." - Pauline Taumalolo '18

If it weren’t for the scholarships that Westminster Choir College (WCC) gave to Lois Laverty, she would not have been able to attend the school or receive the two degrees she earned from there years ago. Now, she has found a way to pay it forward.
