McCallie announces the Campbell Society for 25-year donors

  • Support McCallie

In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the annual giving program at McCallie, the school announces a new giving society to honor those donors who have given to McCallie for at least 25 years.

Nearly 1500 households throughout McCallie’s history of annual giving are now inaugural members of the Campbell Society. The Society is designed to show the school’s gratitude for those who have faithfully given by recognizing their commitment to the school and encouraging others to carry that tradition forward. The Campbell Society demonstrates that no matter the size of the gift, the loyalty of our supporters is deeply valued. 

The Campbell Society is named for Gaines Campbell, a former McCallie parent and trustee who in 1946, envisioned how parents might assist the school in recruiting the best teachers possible. He acted on this vision by forming the Patron’s Sustaining Fund. His son, Gaines Campbell, Jr. ’45, and grandson, Gaines Campbell III ’73, have continued the legacy of philanthropy that was modeled for them as loyal contributors to McCallie. 

“My family has passionately believed in helping McCallie annually.  It is my privilege to welcome these families to the Campbell Society and for continuing the tradition that my grandfather, father, and I have believed in at a school that we love,” said Gaines Campbell III ‘73.

Inscribed on the Scottish crest of the Campbell family are the words “Ne Obliviscaris” which means Forget Not. McCallie is grateful for the faithful generosity of our donors who have not forgotten the transformative experience that McCallie provides. 

Their philanthropic leadership enables the school to continually do the work of transforming the lives of our students.
