With the conclusion of the academic year, GiftLegacy is taking a summer break and will resume in late August. This is the last newsletter for 2016/2017. Even though GiftLegacy is on hiatus, the Office of Gift Planning is open throughout the summer and we welcome your calls and inquiries.
Westmont Athletic teams and athletes excelled this year and this spring was no exception. Baseball players received recognition, with Westmont's winningest pitcher Daniel Butler and second baseman Michael Stefanic being named to the all GSAC team and Derek Rodrigo and Michael Frigon receiving Golden Glove honors. The Men's and Women's Track teams are both GSAC Champions, the men claiming their fifth in a row while the women have now won two in the last three years. And in Tennis, the men's team won the GSAC championship and 4 men's and women's players have been named to the all GSAC team.
Since Westmont's inception, the training and mobilization of students for ministry and service overseas has been integral to our mission. For the past twenty years, Emmaus Road has carried on that rich tradition. This summer, 26 Westmont students will spend at least four weeks serving communities around the world on five teams in six countries, including Spain, Uganda, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia and Peru. Projects include outreach to local hospitals, schools and prisons, as well as partnering with local non-profits and businesses. For more information, click here.
This week's GiftLegacy includes an article about planning and setting goals in the midst of life circumstances and the importance of updating your will or trust. For more information about estate planning or trusts that can benefit you and Westmont, please contact us at (805) 565-6058.
Have a wonderful summer. Look for GiftLegacy when the students return to campus.
Blessings and Best,
