Leadership giving through The Founders' Society accounts for 73 percent of giving to The Gilman Fund. Its members — alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends who contribute a total of $2,500 in one fiscal year — represent our most visionary supporters. They lead our efforts to ensure that the extraordinary Gilman experience lives on.
The Founders' Society carries six recognition levels for donors and acknowledges cumulative giving.
Each member of The Medallion Society has provided more than one million dollars in lifetime giving to Gilman School.
Members of The Medallion Society are those benefactors who have supported Gilman at the highest level — our greatest philanthropic leaders — who raise the charitable sights of our broader constituency. These donors provide the financial resources to support and reinforce the foundation of our School over generations.
Its name is inspired by Gilman's highest student award, the William A. Fisher Medallion, awarded to the student who has rendered the highest services possible to the School by leadership based on the influence of character.
