The Whitcome Society
A defining moment in Xaverian’s history, Xaverian’s endowment grew from a little over 1 million dollars to over $10 million in 2005 upon Dr. Phil Whitcome’s passing. Dr.Whitcome ’66 was known for being the leader on the Board, focused on long-term planning to ensure Xaverian’s future success.
The Whitcome Society—named in his honor—serves to thank donors who include Xaverian High School in their estate plans. Members fulfill their philanthropic goals by providing much-needed funds to support facilities enhancement and scholarships. If you’ve already included Xaverian in your estate plan, we would like to personally thank you and invite you to join the Whitcome Society. Members will be acknowledged in future Annual Reports and invited to a reception in May 2012, details to come.
