Giving Opportunities

Gilmour Academy’s ability to thrive and to continue to be able to offer new generations of students an excellent education is due, in part, to its many loyal friends who donate their time, talent and financial resources to the Academy and its mission.

Annual Fund

The cornerstone of philanthropy is the Annual Fund which makes the most immediate impact on our students.  Its focus is to raise unrestricted funds which help to contain tuition costs and to provide need-based financial assistance to students who otherwise might not be able to afford a Gilmour education. The Annual Fund is used to attract and retain distinguished faculty, provide state-of-the-art technology and continue excellent academic and extracurricular programs.

Restricted Gifts

Restricted Gifts includes contributions that the donors have designated for specific projects or programs such as endowed and restricted scholarship funds.  For more information, please contact Mary Ann Campbell at (440) 473-8056 or campbellm@gilmour.org.


Gilmour Academy’s generous donors who give their time and talent contribute directly to the success of the school and their involvement enhances our students’ experiences.   Parents and Alumni who volunteer strengthen the ties between the Academy and the Gilmour Community.

Our volunteers spare no effort to generate and support exciting fundraising events – Fashion Show, Lunch with Santa – which raise needed funds.  Each of Gilmour Academy’s parent organizations holds a major annual fundraiser and smaller events. Alumni who volunteer as class agents strengthen the ties between the Academy and its graduates, which helps increase alumni support for the Annual Fund.   For more information, please contact Mary Kate Farrar Vega '93 at (440) 473-8009 or farrarvegamk@gilmour.org.

Dick & Joanne Ursem

"As I look back to the fall of 1946 when I arrived on the “campus” in Gates Mills, Ohio, I had no idea what was in store for me. I now know that everything my classmates and I did, was a first. From that time until this day, all of the students would follow and build upon what we had begun. So now when the Annual Fund appeal comes around, I feel we, the Class of ’50, still need to be the leaders and show we appreciate what Gilmour was, is and will be in the future!"
