THE WESTMINSTER FOUNDATION
The Westminster Foundation, Princeton, New Jersey, Inc. is not affiliated with Westminster Choir College or Rider University. We are an independent, tax-exempt organization dedicated to preserving the legacy and ensuring the future of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, and to opposing efforts by Rider University to sell, relocate or close Westminster Choir College.
Given the ongoing uncertainty regarding a secure and lasting future for Westminster Choir College, the Westminster Foundation seeks to separate Westminster Choir College from Rider University and enable it to affiliate with another institution that shares Westminster's values, mission, and educational and musical standards. If the college is moved to Rider’s Lawrenceville campus, as is planned by Rider University, the separate and independent existence of Westminster Choir College would be eliminated, possibly leading to the ultimate loss of this renowned and treasured cultural institution altogether.
Formed by a diverse group of stakeholders committed to working together to advocate for Westminster’s future, the Foundation will engage in efforts to secure a strong, healthy and thriving Westminster Choir College. The Foundation will not yield in its efforts to preserve and protect the future of this unique and important cultural phenomenon. The Westminster Foundation is not affiliated with Rider University or with Westminster Choir College.
The Mission of the Westminster Foundation is to ensure the continued existence of and support for Westminster Choir College as an independent musical institution of world renown in Princeton, New Jersey. The specific objectives and purposes include, but are not limited to:
Exploring and developing strategies necessary to separate Westminster Choir College from Rider University, and enable it to affiliate with another institution that shares Westminster's values, mission, and educational and musical standards, in order to ensure that generations to come will have the opportunity to receive its first-rate, broad musical training and academic education;
Providing a solid, self-sustaining network and forum of alumni, supporters, and benefactors to promote this effort;
Providing support for legal actions to block Rider University’s proposed sale or closing of Westminster Choir College;
Providing independent scholarships to Westminster Choir College students to help foster and nurture the school in this sensitive time; and
Preserving the Westminster Conservatory and Continuing Education program.
