There are several ways you can help The W.L. Gilbert Trust Corporation and The Gilbert School in providing a 21st century education to our students. The most beneficial way is a direct donation (cash, check, PayPal, credit card, or appreciated securities) to the Gilbert Annual Fund or to any of our named funds or scholarships.
The Gilbert Annual Fund is our yearly appeal to alumni and friends in order to enhance the teaching and learning experiences of The Gilbert School. Planned gifts, usually in the form of bequests, have helped establish almost 100 scholarships. Memorial funds are a wonderful way to honor someone who has impacted your life.
For accurate accounting purposes, checks should be made out to The W.L. Gilbert Trust with "Annual Fund" or the name of the specific scholarship in the subject line. Or see below to donate online.
If you make a donation, ask your company if they have a MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM. If so, your HR department can give you a form to fill out and mail to us. Your donation to The Gilbert School could be doubled!
