Your School

Support Gilbert



There are several ways you can help The Gilbert School in providing a 21st century education to our students. The most beneficial way is through a direct donation (cash, check, credit card, or appreciated securities) to The Gilbert Fund (our annual appeal) or to any of our named funds or scholarships.

The Gilbert 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!

Mail donations, matching gift forms, and questions to:

W.L. Gilbert Trust

c/o The Gilbert School

200 Williams Ave.

Winsted, CT 06098

Make a Gift Online

For your convenience, you may also donate via BlueSnap, our new payment gateway, which allows you to give in a number of different ways online. Once you submit your gift, the Office of Alumni and Development will receive notification and we will mail an acknowledgement letter to you for tax purposes.

If you would like to make an online gift to a fund other than The Gilbert Fund, you may designate your gift to another cause related to TGS. 



Thank you! As always, your support of The Gilbert School is greatly appreciated. Questions? Email Jake Smith '08, Director of Development, at or call him at (860) 921-6147.
