Donor Report

In the following lists, you will read the names of the people who contributed to a strong tradition of philanthropy by making gifts to The Ellis School between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016. It is our pleasure to share with you these incredibly supportive alumnae, parents, employees, and friends who represent every facet of the Ellis community. What you won't see in these pages is what they've made possible: the access and opportunities their contributions create for Ellis students and faculty every day. If you haven't been to campus in awhile, we hope you'll come visit soon and see for yourself. Thank you to all who hold up Ellis with your time, talent, and generosity.
