Building Westmont's
Future Together

Our Gift Planning team has experience across a range of giving opportunities, and we are always available for phone calls and personal visits to discuss your particular areas of interest, from designating Westmont in your wills or trusts to exploring life income gifts with generous tax benefits.

We offer supplemental estate planning and tax guidance information on these web pages through our planned giving partner, Crescendo Interactive, Inc. Based in Camarillo, CA, Crescendo has been a preferred service provider for over 30 years among colleges, universities, faith organizations, professional advisors and other nonprofit organizations.

Family Values Inspire a Bequest to Westmont

Family Values Inspire a Bequest to Westmont

Nancy Jude '65, who celebrated her 50th college reunion in 2015, devoted 42 years to the Glendale Unified School District, 26 of them as principal of two elementary schools. Despite large populations of students who spoke English as a second language and students from low-income families, both schools won awards for academic achievement under her leadership. She ended her career directing the GATE and Teacher Induction Programs.

"I had a wonderful and meaningful career in education," she says. "God used me. We have a mission field in the public schools, where our neediest students go-they need the most help. I believe that wherever you work you have an opportunity to minister."

"Westmont was a good fit for me. I came from a strong Christian family, and the college was a

comfortable, safe and wholesome place. Staff and professors were high caliber, personable and knew our names. Westmont has always had a place in my heart because of its strong Christian focus."

Nancy moved to Raleigh, N.C. in 2010 to care for her aging mother, which she now considers her mission. She stays active in her church, Operation School Bell, and a neighborhood association.

"My father taught me that what we have comes from God." she says. These family values inspired her to join the Wallace Emerson Society and make a provision for Westmont in her estate plan. "We're responsible for being good stewards of what God has given us, and God has blessed me," she says. "I'm proud of Westmont, and I know the college will wisely use what I give for the Lord."
