Ways to Give

Honoring the Past, Ensuring the Future

Inspire others. Make a difference in the quality of the Brimmer experience. Join a community of donors that helps Brimmer to maintain excellence today and secure a vision for the future. Gifts to Brimmer strengthen our School and support our faculty and students.

Our generous donors include current parents, parents of alumni, alumni, grandparents, trustees, faculty, staff, and friends. Annual Fund gifts provide critical support for students, faculty and programs during the current school year, while endowment gifts, capital gifts, and planned gifts provide for our future by supporting new and updated facilities as well as for endowments for financial aid, professional development, and special programs.

Brimmer’s Development Office follows the CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education) industry standard Donor Bill of Rights and stewards all gifts, keeping our generous donors well-informed and honoring their intentions.

Ways to Give

Make a gift today to the Annual Fund or contact the Development Office about endowment or major gifts to support institutional priorities. Gifts may be made in recognition or memory of someone special. Giving a gift to the School will result in tax benefits.
