Fall 2015: Dare Launch


The largest campaign in Milton’s history—a campaign about our faculty, our students and the power of their experiences together—launched its public phase. Riveted on the compelling stories shared by a student, a faculty member, and a recent graduate, 500 Milton alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends joined President of the Board Lisa Donohue ’83, in declaring this moment as Milton’s moment. 

At launch, on Saturday, October 24, Milton had already achieved 48 percent of the $175 million goal. With gratitude and excitement about the challenge ahead, Milton celebrated the many donors whose confidence in Milton’s vision made the launch possible. Eager to move on our goal, to advance Milton’s role as a national leader in teaching and learning, these donors enabled action on key priorities that support faculty salaries, cutting edge professional development, and purposeful curriculum innovation.

The enthusiasm of Todd Bland, head of school, and Brad Bloom, campaign chair, clearly telegraphed the need for each person who knows Milton to take responsibility for reimagining Milton’s great legacy—for each individual’s role in providing our faculty, students and staff the resources, the freedom and the power to strengthen education that is true to Milton: questing, evolving and daring.
