Leadership Societies

Send by email

Members of the annual leadership giving societies have a vital impact on the overall welfare of our school through their financial contributions, advisory support, and advocacy. Leadership gifts represent 80 percent of the total contributions to the Catlin Gabel Fund.

The generosity of leadership donors enhances all aspects of a Catlin Gabel education. Members' gifts support, among other things, student financial aid, professional development for our faculty, science and laboratory equipment, athletic equipment, outstanding class trips and educational outings, and technology upgrades.

Individuals or couples who annually contribute a total of $2,000 or more qualify for membership in a Catlin Gabel annual leadership giving society. Gifts can be cash, securities, real estate, or real property. An employer's matching gift counts towards an individual's membership. Leadership gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
