Class Gift to Westmont

We will present our class gift at the 50th Reunion Golden Warriors-Trustees Luncheon on May 3, 2013. The class committee wants to emphazize a class participation goal rather than a monetary goal, so please participate generously!

      • Our goal: 50 percent participation
      • Our current giving: 18 percent
      • If only 34 more of us give, we will reach our goal! (Based on classmates with current contact information)

Gifts of any amount will be counted toward the participation goal. Since this is our 50th Reunion, why not make your gift a multiple of 50? ($50, $500…you get the idea!). By the way, if you’re married to a Westmont classmate your gift counts as two gifts. And if you married someone in an ealier or later class then each of you will get credit for your respective classes. It is so easy! Click Here and credit will automatically be given to your class.
