Boldly BL: A Campaign for Boys' Latin

Boldly BL: The Campaign for Boys' Latin will position the School for long-term success and provide students with even more robust experiences and learning opportunities. We couldn't be more excited to be moving boldly forward.

A Bold Gift to Boldly BL

Dear Boys' Latin Alumni, Parents, Families and Friends,

I am thrilled to announce that W. Kyle Gore, Class of 1980, along with Paula, his wife, has made a $2.5 million leadership gift to the Boldly BL Campaign for Boys’ Latin. Kyle currently serves as treasurer of Boys’ Latin’s Board of Trustees and Campaign Chair for the Boldly BL Campaign. 

On behalf of our entire School community, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Kyle and Paula for their generosity and unwavering commitment to Boys’ Latin. In recognition of this lead gift, the 12,000 square-foot, three-story addition, located between Williams and Hopkins Hall will be known as Gore Hall, housing additional modern classrooms, collaborative workspaces and a vibrant art studio.  These transformational changes will allow us to further enrich the academic and overall experience of our students. 

Kyle reflected that “BL uniquely offers a community that champions the ideal that every boy matters, and that every graduate can and will make a profoundly positive difference in the lives of others and on the world around them in unique ways we cannot yet imagine. Giving back to Boys’ Latin is investing in the future.” He knows that the impact a Boys’ Latin education has on the lives of students hasn’t changed since his time on Lake Avenue.

In the fall of 1973, Kyle entered Boys’ Latin as a seventh grader and quickly began to make his mark.  As an upper schooler, Kyle was a member of the It’s Academic team, the Debate Society, The Inkwell, and also participated in tennis, basketball and baseball. He won the Evert Marsh Topping Debate Cup, The Board of Trustees Award for the highest GPA, awards in math and physical science, graduated as Class valedictorian and, in 2019, was named a Boys’ Latin Distinguished Alumni.  

Kyle went on to graduate Summa Cum Laude with High Honors in Economics from Dartmouth College. Today, Kyle Gore is a Senior Managing Director, principal shareholder and co-founder of CGA Capital, LLC, a privately-owned Baltimore area real estate private equity and investment banking firm.  Kyle serves as President of the Board of Roland Park Country School.

Kyle and Paula, who is an avid community volunteer, have three daughters, Cailin, Payton and Regan, who also worked in the BL lower school during the 2020-2021 academic year.

I am so grateful to Paula and Kyle for their extraordinary generosity and unwavering commitment to our School.  I invite you to click here for more information on the Boldly BL Campaign, and I look forward to sharing additional campaign updates over the next several months. 

For now, please join me in celebrating this wonderful moment for our School and our boys. 

All the best,
Christopher J. Post
Headmaster

CAMPAIGN PROGRESS

CAMPAIGN PRIORITIES

gelston athletic center 

The Gelston Athletic Center will be reimagined to provide all students with an even more robust athletic experience. The fitness center will be expanded and renovated and filled with the most up-to-date exercise and workout equipment. Locker rooms, the athletic conference room and the training room will also be completely renovated, all designed to improve athletes' training and well-being. The lobby will be refreshed to create a welcoming gathering space for students, parents, alumni and friends.

 

BOYS' LATIN UPPER SCHOOL

Boys' Latin's upper school will undergo a complete renovation and significant expansion.  In the upper school, we will be renovating classrooms and learning spaces, including transforming the library into a modernized learning commons, to meet the ever-evolving educational needs of our boys.  We will also add a three-story addition between Williams and Hopkins Hall, providing additional learning spaces equipped with the latest technology, the most up-to-date science labs, collaboration spaces for students and faculty alike, and brand new vibrant art studio. 

eNDOWMENT

The continued growth of Boys’ Latin School’s endowment is important for the financial well-being of the School and allows us to continue to provide boys and young men with life-changing educations. Each $1 million raised in additional endowment supports one full tuition. Each $1 million dollar raised supports more than half of the median salary and benefits of a faculty member. Each $1 million dollar raised supports the annual expenses of any of our myriad of academic or co-curricular programs. In doing so, we will continue to enrich the lives of our students and propel Boys’ Latin boldly forward.
