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
