GIVING

HOW WILL FUNDS BE RAISED?

We appeal to the many passionate Westminster alumni and friends in the arts community here in Princeton, in the US, and around the world who share our vision of protecting and preserving Westminster Choir College, to support us financially as well as through the contribution of ideas and the establishment of connections to assist us in achieving our goals in preserving the school and ensuring its future.

 

Contributions to the Westminster Foundation, Princeton, New Jersey, Inc. are tax-deductible pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. (EIN 82-4291802). Contributions to the Foundation are not refundable. The Foundation’s viewpoints and solicitations are not in any way affiliated with Rider University or Westminster Choir College. Your generous gift in support of current efforts to ensure the future of our treasured school will immediately be put to use and are sincerely appreciated.

HOW WILL FUNDS BE USED?

Funds raised by the Westminster Foundation will be used to engage in the Foundation’s efforts to ensure that generations to come will have the opportunity to study at Westminster Choir College, and will provide financial support through scholarships for students to facilitate their studies. In order to pursue its goals, Foundation funds will also be used to engage the professional assistance necessary to source major donors, explore financing possibilities, and maintain the legal challenge to the proposed relocation or sale of the Choir College. Foundation leadership is committed to accountability and good stewardship of all funds contributed, minimizing administrative costs to the extent possible. The Westminster Foundation, Princeton, New Jersey, Inc., is not affiliated with Rider University.

WHAT EXPENSES WILL THE FOUNDATION INCUR?

The Westminster Foundation will incur expenses that may include those for administrative, legal, accounting, fundraising, and consultant costs necessary to secure and position the Foundation for its long-term viability and success.  As Rider University’s current efforts to relocate or sell the Choir College increase, the need for legal action to block these efforts is immediate. Raising financial support is necessary in order to secure viable merger partners, provide scholarships for Westminster students, enable Westminster Choir College to return to independence, and maintain the school in the interim. The Westminster Foundation, Princeton, New Jersey, Inc., is not affiliated with Rider University.

WHY SHOULD I GIVE TO THE FOUNDATION?

While lawsuits challenging Rider University’s attempt to sell or relocate Westminster Choir College remain in place, and as Rider administration continues its efforts to relocate the school, the need for an entity committed to protecting Westminster’s legacy, ensure its long-term viability, and develop an alternative strategy to achieve these goals is clear. 

 

Rider administration has expressly stated that the purpose of the proposed move of Westminster Choir College from Princeton to the Lawrenceville campus is to blend it with Rider University, eliminate its existence as an independent and separate school of higher education, and create a new brand. This is against the terms of 1991 Merger Agreement in which Rider was given Westminster Choir College under a promise of protection and stewardship. The Merger Agreement requires that the resources of Westminster are to be used by Rider University for Westminster’s programs, and that Rider is obliged to maintain the Choir College’s separate identity. 

 

The Foundation will continue all measures necessary to stop the relocation or sale of the Choir College, as well as the attempt to use these proceeds for Rider University's benefit rather than for Westminster's programs, as they were intended. Your generous financial support is critical to the success of the Westminster Foundation’s efforts to preserve the legacy, restore the independence, and ensure the future of Westminster Choir College.
