As you look toward ways to improve our world, consider the impact of your contributions to NMH.
Each year, the school’s philanthropic priority is to create and maintain a strong NMH Fund
. Thousands of alumni, parents, and friends of NMH come together for this crucial common goal: to affirm the value of an NMH education and to ensure that the NMH experience is available for generations to come. Large or small, annual gifts make NMH a strong, dynamic place where the next generation of leaders and changemakers will learn and grow. Make an NMH Fund gift today.
Right now, NMH is also focused on realizing our 2020 Strategic Plan
. And we are in the quiet phase of what will be the largest capital campaign in the school’s history, with the goals of increasing endowment (for financial aid, faculty development, and campus stewardship), increasing the NMH Fund, and building new facilities that will support academics, family life, athletics, and health. We hope you will find a project that captures your attention and that you will help fund.
Current Capital Projects
Current parents Michelle and Rob Smith P’15, ’15, ’17, ’19 made a generous and historic lead gift that started the ball rolling for this exciting project, which will support the growing NMH crew program as well as the entire campus community. Read more.
Gilder Center for Integrative Math and Science Education
When Richard Gilder ’50 said he would give NMH $10 million toward a new math and science center, the faculty was encouraged to dream big. This new building, along with a new collaborative mastery-based curriculum, will put NMH at the cutting edge of math and science education. Read more.
Calagione Fitness Center
In 2016, Sam ’88 and Mariah Draper ’89 Calagione P’18 gave a lead gift of $1.8 million to convert the old laundry building on campus into a first-class fitness facility. By repurposing this iconic building, NMH is honoring its history while looking toward the future health and wellbeing of everyone on campus, athletes and nonathletes alike. Plans are developing; more information will be posted here soon.
In 2013, NMH built six new faculty homes in what has become known as "faculty village." The $2.4 million project was completed in 2015. Many houses were named in honor of beloved teachers: the late Mec Peller; the late Alice Baldwin and E. Mary Baxter; Bill ’59 and Linda Batty; the late Mary Lighthall Compton ’44; and in honor of the Cole Family, which includes numerous NMH graduates. The name of the final house is still being contemplated by the donors. Read more.
Bolger Center for Early Childhood Education
In 2014, with a lead gift from David F. Bolger ’50, NMH embarked on a mission to build a new early childhood education center on campus to replace a rented facility in Northfield. The plan is that this first-rate center will help NMH attract and retain highly qualified faculty with small children. Fundraising is complete for this project. The building opened on January 3, 2017, and a dedication is planned for May 2017. Read more.
