Gifts to the Academy
Philanthropic gifts to The Governor's Academy are as vitally important to the school’s future today as they were when Governor William Dummer bequeathed his family farm to create a school in 1763. Today, more so than ever, there are many ways to support the Academy, including gifts to The Governor's Fund, the endowment, capital projects, and planned gifts through wills and trusts.

INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
With True Courage, The Campaign for Governor’s will enhance every aspect of the Governor’s experience. Our comprehensive fundraising campaign, launched in October 2017, has three focus areas: endowment, annual fund, and capital projects. Growing the endowment will allow the Academy to fund additional student financial aid and robust professional development for our faculty. The Governor’s Fund, our annual fund, is needed every year to supplement tuition dollars and sustain our programs, curriculum, and campus. Finally, we have three exciting capital projects planned: a new environmental studies center on the banks of the Parker River, a renovated and expanded student center, and new faculty housing.
