The Endowment First Challenge Grant encourages leadership donors to double the value of their endowment gift to the campaign's financial support and opportunity and teaching and learning priorities.
When Andy Hirsch and Chris West agreed to co-chair the Class of 1969 50th Reunion committee with Jamie Snead, they did so knowing they would lead the class gift effort. Along with other committee members, each in his own way has taken advantage of the tax code to maximize his gift to Gilman through a combination of gift vehicles.
Robert F. Greenhill ’54 and his late wife Gayle honored the life and influence of one of Gilman’s most inspiring teachers, role models, outstanding educators, and trailblazers, Ruth Weaver Williams, with a $2 million leadership gift to First Things First, which will establish an endowed faculty chair.
Gilman celebrated the official launch of First Things First: Endowing Gilman’s Promise and People on Saturday, October 7. This comprehensive capital campaign will strengthen Gilman's leadership legacy by giving talented boys access to the School and guiding them to excellent colleges and lives of purpose; attracting and supporting gifted faculty; and providing the programs that allow every boy to discover and develop the best in himself.
