The Be Nobles Bold Campaign, which started in 2013 and will close in late 2018, continues to move forward at a consistent pace, recently topping the $130-million mark, towards our total goal of $137 million.
We have raised over $50 million for endowment towards our campaign goal of $60 million. Fifty new endowment funds have been established during this campaign by graduates and parents. Thanks to the generosity of donors thus far, as well as market growth, the school’s endowment is now more than $150 million. Head of School Cathy Hall believes that endowment per student is the most reliable predictor of a school’s future success, making reaching the campaign endowment goal absolutely critical.
We have raised nearly $13 million for the construction of the new academic center and the renovation of the Baker Science Building. We have $1 million more to raise to reach our goal before this project is complete. These transformative spaces will immediately impact the educational experience for generations of Nobles students. These new buildings will be the most innovative learning facilities on our campus: they will be our platform for experimenting, exploring and encouraging our students to stretch their thinking and learning in every possible way. The buildings epitomize our approach to embracing who we are and what we believe in, while looking aspirationally forward. They will be the hub of our community on the upper campus.
