About the Campaign
McDonogh Forever is the largest capital campaign undertaken by an independent school in Maryland. Launched in November 2010, the $75 million campaign will fund priority construction projects in McDonogh’s campus master plan:
- a student life center for students K-12, with a lead gift from local businessman Edward St. John
- a science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) building for grades 9-12, with a lead gift from alumnus Irvin Naylor '54 and his family
- an efficient energy plant to serve the entire campus
- new campus green space, turf fields, parking areas, and traffic access
In addition, the school will be raising money for the annual fund and endowment.
McDonogh Forever launched with a stunning $30 million challenge grant from the Rollins-Luetkemeyer Foundation. The new gift increases the foundation's total support of the school to $50 million since 2004.
Alumnus and longtime McDonogh trustee Henry A. Rosenberg Jr. '48 will lead the campaign and is one of the major donors. He committed $3.5 million for The Henry A. Rosenberg Jr. Campus Green.
