Learn about our Special Funds Below
This year, our Annual Fund will focus on our future, by taking a look at Gillen Brewer's "Building Blocks": Building, Sustaining, and Investing. It is these three pillars, supported by our community members, that have enabled GBS to highlight our unique academic-therapeutic approach, and to fulfill our mission for the last thirty years and counting. For the last three decades, Gillen Brewer's mission has been to educate and support our students in becoming confident, independent, and engaged learners. Gillen Brewer depends upon the generous support of the GBS community - trustees, parents, grandparents, alumni families, friends, and staff. Your critical support helps fund the essential and exceptional programs that make Gillen Brewer a unique place for children with special needs and their families.
Your meaningful donation supports our year-round academic and therapeutic program, as well as: student and family therapy, specials (such as art, science, technology, and music), health and fitness programs at Asphalt Green, maintenance of our facilities and technology, and community partnerships with organizations such as Art Farm.
As part of the 2022 Annual Fund, we caught up with GBS alumni Leah Mace and Jordan Levinson. Check out their video interviews below, where they offer reflections on their times at Gillen Brewer and advice to incoming and prospective students.
