Creating opportunity for the next 50 years.
Gilman today is among the most diverse independent schools in Baltimore because of the administrators, trustees, and alumni who forged the path of diversity 50 years ago.
This anniversary celebrates each of our own personal Gilman stories. We can think of no better way to commemorate our contributions to the Gilman community and recognize those faculty who ballasted our journeys than by creating an endowed scholarship fund in honor of William A. Greene, Jr., Gilman's first Black faculty member.
We reached our initial goal of $100,000 but don't want to stop there. Now, we are focusing on participation and striving for 50 for 50 - that is 50% participation by Gilman's Black alumni in recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the School's first Black graduates.
Thanks to the Gilman men below who have contributed to this scholarship effort.
Five-year pledges are encouraged and will help us achieve our goal. To discuss how you can increase the impact of your gift and help ensure our legacy at Gilman, please get in touch with:
All gifts to support the William A. Greene, Jr. Scholarship Fund are part of First Things First: Endowing Gilman's Promise and People. The First Things First campaign is a comprehensive philanthropic campaign designed to equip Gilman for continued bold leadership in an ever-changing landscape. It is an effort to raise $60 million over a six year period (fiscal years 2014 - 2019) with priorities focussed on financial support and opportunity, teaching and learning, and The Gilman Fund.
