Members of the Leadership Council make the largest impact on Shipley's fundraising success. In 2015-2016, the 252 donors who gave leadership level gifts represented approximately 14 percent of all Annual Fund donors, yet contributed just under 80 percent of the more than $1.6M Annual Fund total. Their bold investment inspires others while supporting every Shipley student and teacher.

Leadership Council membership starts with an annual gift of $1,894 or more. Young alumni are invited to join at levels tailored to early careers. Spreading payments over several months may help when considering a larger gift.

Please review the methods of making a contribution, including details on donating gifts of appreciated securities.
