From the Autumn 2012 Caller & Annual Report

Dear Catlin Gabel friends and families,

A hearty thank you to our donors and their tremendous commitment to Catlin Gabel’s future! We celebrate our donors who appreciate the opportunity to make a difference in the life of our school and share a passion for Catlin Gabel. Places like this don’t just happen overnight. Special places like Catlin Gabel require dedication from our entire school community, with generous longtime donors who have helped lay a solid foundation for the good work we do each day, as well as our new families whose impressive giving has strengthened our school.
Our ambitious effort to raise significant funds for the school was achieved this year because of dedicated students, alumni, parents, grandparents, employees, and friends who have donated in unprecedented ways. We met our annual fundraising goals for both annual support and the Campaign for Arts and Minds!
We are thrilled to share with you that we have raised $15 million, which is 75 percent of the $20 million goal, for the Campaign for Arts and Minds. This transformative campaign will bolster the school’s endowment and add 20,000 square feet of space for the Middle and Upper School arts programs in what will be the new Creative Arts Center.
When we are finished with our campaign work, the school will deliver on its mission to provide an enlightened education rich in the arts and grant access to a wide array of students – with an increasingly solid financial foundation.

Lark Palma, Head of School
