During the past 12 years, West has focused its philanthropic efforts on charities that aid cancer research and care, STEM education, and children with special needs in the communities where our employees live and work. During this time, West employees have raised more than $2.5 million for a variety of charities located around the globe through West without Borders and other campaigns.
The H.O. West Foundation Matching Gifts to Education Program is designed to assist employees in supporting educational institutions of their choice.
The Foundation matches gifts to eligible schools, from a minimum of $25 to a maximum of $1,000 per employee, per calendar year. The program applies to four-year and two-year colleges and graduate, professional and secondary schools within the United States or territories.
The Herman O. West Scholarship Program is made possible by a gift to the Foundation from Mr. William S. West’s family in memory of our former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
