Capital Giving

Capital giving can transform a school, preserving its past and securing its future. Donors who make contributions to advance the School's strategic priorities become a permanent and powerful part of the Gilman experience.

From supporting needed building and renovation projects to launching endowment funds for priorities such as tuition assistance, faculty support, and academic programs, capital commitments safeguard the excellence of a Gilman School education for future generations.

The Importance of Endowed Gifts

Endowed gifts become a permanent part of the Gilman legacy, providing for current and future students and faculty and securing Gilman's financial health in perpetuity. Our strong endowment allows Gilman to plan for the School's future and meet strategic priorities over time. The stronger the endowment, the greater the possibilities.
