Grasshopper Society

Inspired by Gilman's rich history and committed to its future, Grasshopper Society members invest in leaders of tomorrow by including Gilman in their estate plans today.

The Grasshopper Society honors and recognizes donors who have participated in Gilman’s planned giving program, ensuring the future vitality of the school.

The Society’s name is rooted in the 1910 completion of Gilman’s Roland Park campus. To commemorate the occasion, a grasshopper weathervane—symbolic of freedom and financial success—was chosen to adorn the bell tower of the new building, now called Carey Hall. The Grasshopper Society captures the spirit of the weathervane and represents Gilman’s distinguished tradition of philanthropy.
