The Fund for Westminster

While it has been said that it takes a village to raise a child, Westminster can state with confidence that it certainly takes a community to build a school. To help guarantee that the School remains the very best it can be, we have created the Fund for Westminster. Through the Fund’s annual fundraising activities we are able to enhance the overall academic experience of our current pupils while at the same time continuing to widen access, helping to ensure that capable minds can experience the best possible education, regardless of financial obstacles. Each year’s campaign begins with a telethon, where recent Westminster Leavers contact OWW, Parents and former Parents to update them on our selected projects and bursary progress, ask for their feedback and solicit their support.

Giving is encouraged throughout the School Year, with an event held in the Lent term to personally thank all of our donors and allow them to see first-hand the items that they have helped to fund. Through their regular support of the Fund, our Westminster Community has succeeded in demonstrating that any gift, no matter the size, can make a genuine difference to the future of their School.

Much like venture capital, this type of giving allows donors to make an investment in the lives of Westminster’s pupils and helps us to maintain our unique entrepreneurial culture in teaching and scholarship. Since 2009, the Fund for Westminster has raised over £2,000,000 with the majority designated for bursary support. You can read more about this year’s chosen projects in our Fund for Westminster brochure.
