Where to Give Gift Planning
When you include Westmont in your estate plan, you are playing an important role in sustaining Westmont's future.
There are a number of ways you can be a part of the college's future as you consider your giving:
Gifts through wills and living trusts
Gifts of real estate and marketable securities
Beneficiary designations for retirement plans and insurance policies
Life income gifts with generous tax benefits that pay you and/or other designated beneficiaries an income for life such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts
The Wallace Emerson Society recognizes alumni, parents, and friends who have included Westmont in their wills or estate plans. Society members are vital partners who are passionate about the mission and ministry of Westmont and wish to sustain its future for generations of students to come. The Society was created in 1993 in honor of the college's founding president, Dr. Wallace Emerson. Now more than 785 members continue that heritage and vision. Learn more
