FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL

Dear Friends, Your support of the William Penn Charter School this past year was nothing short of remarkable! The launch in October of the How Far? campaign—with 500 people turning out to support PC in a transformed Dooney Field House—set the sights high for what we can achieve together, and you responded! This past year, the more than $22 million in gifts and pledges to the

How Far? campaign helped us reach $66 million on the current $75 million campaign goal. Each gift, no matter what size, has a story: a teacher who inspired, the transformational support of financial aid, a family’s long and multigenerational connections to Penn Charter, a simple thank you. Each gift has a story: Annual Fund matching gifts, the excitement of Great Day to Be a Quaker, the Grace Fund that supports full access to the PC experience for all our students. Each gift has a story. Leading the charge of How Far? are talented campaign co-chairs Christine Angelakis P ’11, ’13, ’18 and Bill MacDonald OPC ’62, P ’05. Their inspired leadership provides strategic thinking about our campus master plan’s development as well as guidance on making this campaign a success. I am thankful to them, our campaign and development committees, Overseers, the development team and, most importantly, you for your continued generosity. Each gift counts, and each person counts; I am most thankful to you for the gifts you offer as members of this Penn Charter community.

Sincerely,

Darryl J. Ford Head of School

Duncan and Ellen McFarland have increased to

$10,000,000

their commitment to Penn Charter’s $75 million How Far? capital campaign.

“The fact that the capital campaign has come forward with such momentum and success inspires us,” Duncan M. McFarland OPC ’61 said of the decision to double his campaign gift. “We want to motivate other people who share the vision for Penn Charter’s future.” The McFarlands’ first gift to the How Far? capital campaign was unrestricted, meaning it can be used to support any one of the goals of the campaign, including program, financial aid and faculty. However, their new $5 million gift is specifically for the building projects that will transform our campus and position Penn Charter for another 50 years. Those projects are illustrated and explained on the following four pages. “Duncan and Ellen McFarland’s increased gift is indicative of their belief in the future of Penn Charter, and it is inspiration for us to accomplish all that we envision,” said Head of School Darryl J. Ford. “I am thankful for their commitment, and I both value and treasure Duncan’s friendship and support of me.”

The How Far? capital campaign, including the McFarland gift, supports a comprehensive master plan that would simultaneously protect and develop the campus. That vision would provide the facilities and fields Penn Charter needs to continue to be the best place to teach and learn. The plan calls for: •E  recting two new buildings designed for the changing needs of our educational program. •E  xpanding outdoor learning spaces and playing fields. • I mproving practical issues like watershed management and parking. •R  epurpose the existing Lower School for Upper School classrooms and flexible learning spaces.

The multi-step plan begins with moving the baseball field across the street to the Strawbridge Campus; building a new Athletics & Wellness Center on the site of the baseball field; tearing down Dooney Field House, and building a new lower school on that site. Read on.

William Penn Charter School

2017-18 Annual Report of Gifts


LOWER SCHOOL The new lower school will be curriculum-driven, child-centered and light-filled — designed specifically for teaching and learning today and for what research and experience tell us about how children learn and grow.

THE NEW BUILDING WILL FEATURE: •D  evelopmentally appropriate learning communities designed for project-based learning, innovation and collaboration. •S  tate-of-the-art library and spaces for language, art, science, music, studio, movement, IdeaLab and woodshop. • Outdoor learning spaces, plus hardscape and natural play spaces.

Moving the functions of the current field house to a new Athletics and Wellness Center on the site of the old baseball field creates the opportunity to build a lower school on the best possible location — this unites Lower, Middle and Upper School in a vibrant, cohesive Academic Village.

ATHLETICS AND WELLNESS FACILITY In a new Athletics and Wellness complex, we will fortify the PC athletic legacy, elevate team performance, cheer the Quakers, and gather to celebrate all-school traditions. We can already imagine how these new facilities will combine physical education, health and training to promote fitness and healthy choices.

THE ATHLETICS AND WELLNESS CENTER WILL INCLUDE: •S  tate-of-the-art training room, fitness center, wrestling room, locker rooms and meeting spaces. •B  asketball courts not only for competition but team practice and the Physical Education program. •S  afe, direct access to track and Maguire Field, plus the front fields and Strawbridge Campus.

BASEBALL FACILITY Construction of the field across School House Lane on the Strawbridge Campus is the linchpin of the campus transformation envisioned by the How Far? capital campaign.

THE NEW BASEBALL FACILITY WILL FEATURE: • competition field

• batting tunnels

• rain gardens and landscaping

• team dugouts

• spectator seating

• campus parking

• bullpens

• field support building

The old baseball field becomes the site of a new Athletics and Wellness Center, and the new Lower School will be built on the land now occupied by Dooney Field House. Thanks to the support of Overseers and our East Falls neighbors, the site of the new baseball facility has been cleared and construction commenced; the field should be finished in time for the first pitch in spring 2019. PC Naming opportunities and other opportunities to support the project are still available. If you are interested in learning more about the baseball facility and/or how to support it, contact Director of Alumni Relations Chris Rahill at 215-844-3460 ext. 134 or crahill@penncharter.com.

ANNUAL FUND:

Ingredients for a Record-Setting Year This past year, 1,970 donors gave $1,741,532 to the Penn Charter Annual Fund.

A RECORD!

What does it take to have the most successful Annual Fund year on record? Loyalty. Generosity. Leadership. Inspiration. Community. In just one word? YOU!

LOYALTY. If you skim the lists in the back of this report, beside many names you’ll see a tiny number. Beside some you will see a two or a three. Beside many you’ll see 10, 16, something in the 20s, the low 30s. And then you start to see countless 38s, 39s … Wow, is that a 42 next to Stephen A. Bonnie OPC ’66 name? And a 61 next to Peter Benoliel OPC ’49? Those tiny annotations indicate the number of consecutive years the individual has made a gift to Penn Charter. And plenty of people missed a year here and there, so the annotation about consecutive gifts does not reflect the total number of years they have made a gift to the school. Forty-five donors have given for 40 or more years, 230 for 30 years, and 354 for 20 years! “Our community is so incredibly strong, and it shows,” said Tiffani Harris, director of leadership and annual giving.

14

William Penn Charter School

“The sheer number of friends who give year after year — whether they are newer to the community, in their third year, or have stood with us since the 1940s—is truly telling.” That is loyalty. And that is incredible.

GENEROSITY.

This year, 241 donors made more than one gift to the Annual Fund. (That does not include the donors who choose the recurring gift option, an automated monthly amount donated to Penn Charter, particularly popular with PC faculty and staff.) The 225 members of the William Penn Society, our giving society for leadership donors who give $1,689 to $50,000 (or more), count Penn Charter among their philanthropic priorities. (See inside back cover for a description of the leadership giving levels.) In a resounding example of philanthropic priority, this year, the Penn Charter Annual Fund received seven gifts of $50,000, including two from current parents. And, 104 leadership donors increased the size of their gifts this year enough to jump from one level to the next.

Clock Tower Society, earning discounts to Alumni Societysponsored networking events. But overall, our community is inspired by the people and the programs and give to the Annual Fund because of the impact the school has. Some tell us in their own words:

“Because you transform the lives of those who attend,” said a parent of an OPC. 2018 Senior Parent Gift Co-Chairs Dave Connolly and Ellen Barkann, with Head of School Darryl J. Ford.

The Clock Tower Society, the leadership giving level for OPCs within 10 years of graduation, counts 56 donors and is a testament to the commitment of our young alumni to support the school they love. Multiple gifts. Increased gifts. Philanthropic priority. That is generosity. And that is incredible.

“In appreciation of the quality of the programs,” said a grandparent.

“Penn Charter has given me so much that it is time to start giving back,” said a young OPC. “This is my home,” said a faculty member. Love for Penn Charter. Gratitude for the experience. Excellence in education. That is inspiration. And that is incredible.

LEADERSHIP.

Participation rates by Penn Charter faculty and staff have been on the rise, championed by Assistant Director of Annual Giving Emma Rowan, working with a committee of faculty and staff to encourage giving. In Lower School, through the strong leadership of Rowan and Lower School faculty representatives Beckie Miller Hon. 1689 and Lisa Reedich, Annual Fund participation was a record-breaking 100 percent. At Commencement, class president Jake Cutler OPC ’18 announced the Senior Parent Gift total, $176,421 from 90 percent of parents of seniors. Tiffani Harris, worked closely with the senior parent gift co-chairs, Ellen Barkann and David Connolly, who led a team of senior parents in an effort to raise 10 percent of the Annual Fund total. The work of the parent volunteers honored their children and the faculty who have taught them, with the end result supporting excellence in teaching and learning. Three donors, each choosing to remain anonymous, stepped forward at key moments this year, including Great Day to Be a Quaker and in the home-stretch of the Senior Parent Gift effort, and offered to match gifts to the Annual Fund. Participation. Volunteerism. Timely impact. That is leadership. And that is incredible.

INSPIRATION.

There are many reasons why donors give to Penn Charter so generously, year after year. OPCs honor classmates and contemporaries who have died. Parents and OPCs alike give to honor beloved faculty and staff. (See pages 56 and 61.) Reunion years and an opportunity to have one’s gift matched galvanize some. Young OPCs give to join the

2017-18 Annual Report of Gifts

COMMUNITY.

Great Day to Be a Quaker is a fun-filled celebration of Penn Charter, one that has excited Penn Charter Quakers young and old. This year, Penn Charter social media was abuzz with memories, photos and messages of support from OPCs, parents, grandparents and friends connected from near and far. Students and faculty welcomed the bright spot — the warm embrace of community spirit in a month that can be cold, dark, and long — by joyfully celebrating with music, cake and some humor in the photo booth. On the spirited day, 515 people gave $406,017, which meant that we raised one quarter of the Annual Fund total in just 24 hours. One day. 25 percent. Celebrating together. That is OUR community. And that is incredible. PC To learn more about supporting the Annual Fund, contact Director of Leadership and Annual Giving Tiffani Harris: tharris@penncharter.com or 215-844-3460 ext. 276.

FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

EXPANDING OPPORTUNITIES DOES YOUR COMPANY OR EMPLOYER OPERATE IN PENNSYLVANIA AND PAY ANY OF THESE TAXES? • Corporate Net Income Tax • Capital Stock Franchise Tax • Bank and Trust Company Shares Tax • Title Insurance Companies Shares Tax • Insurance Premiums Tax • Mutual Thrift Institution Tax • Personal Income Tax If so, the business may be eligible to participate in two state tax-credit programs that make it possible to redirect tax dollars to Penn Charter for financial aid. The application process is easy, and the benefits to the school and to deserving students are significant.

EITC. OSTC. SPE. BLOCS. It sounds like alphabet soup, but this collection of letters adds up to major impact for Penn Charter students. Each represents a way corporations, and now individuals, can direct part of their Pennsylvania tax liability directly to financial aid for Penn Charter students, and receive a state tax credit for the gift. Corporations in Pennsylvania have the option to participate in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC), which provides a tax credit to businesses that pay Pennsylvania’s corporate income tax — and others, see sidebar — for charitable donations to organizations that provide need-based financial aid to private and parochial schools. A second program, the Opportunity School Tax Credit (OSTC), provides a similar tax-credit incentive to companies to support students in low-income households located in neighborhoods with low-achieving public schools. Combined, EITC and OSTC make it possible for Pennsylvania businesses to direct up to $750,000 per year of their state tax liability directly to financial aid for Penn Charter students and receive a tax credit — 75 percent for a one-year gift and 90 percent for gifts given in two consecutive years. EITC and OSTC gifts to Penn Charter have supported eligible students for close to 10 years, amounting to several million dollars for financial aid. Recently, Penn Charter established a relationship with Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS). BLOCS pursues and facilitates tax-credit gifts to improve the lives of children in the Philadelphia-area through access to high quality, values-based education, including, recently, some schools that are not Catholic. BLOCS raised nearly $20 million for students across Philadelphia last year, $1.5 million of which was directed by donors to support financial aid at Penn Charter. Stephanie Ball, Penn Charter’s associate director of development, works closely with Bill O’Brien, executive director of BLOCS. “There is incredible fundraising power at BLOCS,” Ball said. O’Brien is pleased with the partnership, as well. “Our primary mission is to support families who want to attend a Catholic school, but simply can’t afford it,” he said. “However we are strong school choice advocates and believe parents looking for better educational opportunities for their child should have access to that education. Therefore, we are proud to work with Penn Charter.” The last letters in the alphabet soup of tax-credit giving is SPE, or Special Purpose Entities. BLOCS operates, and in some cases establishes, multiple SPEs. An SPE is a business entity formed for the purpose of making a donation with a personal income tax credit, and permits individuals to direct donations to specific schools and receive a 90 percent credit on their personal state income tax burden if a commitment is (continued on next page)

made for two years. Individuals can joinan SPE such as BLOCS, Bridge or Central Pennsylvania School Fund to direct a gift to Penn Charter. Neil Tanner OPC ’89, P ’19, P ’21 — and son of William Tanner III OPC ’57 — was among the first to use an SPE to make a gift to Penn Charter. “It was very easy,” Tanner said of the process, recommended by his financial advisor. “I reviewed the paperwork sent to me, signed them, and sent in my check.”

Tanner, who is a loyal donor to Penn Charter, saw many benefits for the school, and for him, in using a SPE, like BLOCS, to make his gift. “It allows me to make a gift in a more efficient manner,” he said. “We’ve gotten so much back from Penn Charter. We feel it is important to give back and make a PC education more accessible to others.” Businesses may also direct their tax credit to multiple schools. Huff United, owned by partners Bob Ward OPC ’60, Phil Sullivan P ’04, and Skip Snyder, split their gift among three area schools schools, including Penn Charter. Huff’s accountant, Fred Hilbert, confirms that it’s a simple process, “It’s not that hard, but timing is critical,” he said, because the state sets a cap on credits and qualified applications meet it quickly. These tax credit programs are great because they allow corporations and individuals to “give [their money] to someone who really needs it,” Hilbert said.

With the new opportunities to use personal income tax via SPE, gifts to Penn Charter that earn donors tax credits on their Pennsylvania tax obligation have increased, making a Penn Charter education possible for more eligible students. Last year alone, gifts received from the EITC/OSTC programs, including SPEs, supported 178 Penn Charter students.

THREE GENERATIONS and a Mythical Place

Penn Charter always seemed to be a “mythical place” to Keith Kelson, mostly because of tales told by his father, who attended the school for grades one through 12. Perry Colby Kelson OPC ’41 was not only a Penn Charter lifer, his father — Keith’s grandfather — was a member of the faculty. Everett Stanley Kelson taught mathematics and scripture and was director of the Upper School. In fact, Perry Kelson ended up in one of his father’s math classes, an experience that was “interesting,” said Keith Kelson, adding: “They had very different personalities.” To honor his father and grandfather, Keith Kelson recently made an Annual Fund gift of $10,000 to Penn Charter, with a promise of more to come, including a bequest. The gift was fitting, given the family history, but also somewhat of a surprise. Keith Kelson was born in Philadelphia and lived here for his first five years. But the family moved to a suburb of Dallas, Texas, and his father had a career as a finance manager for General Electric. Keith Kelson never attended his father’s alma mater and did not even return to Philadelphia until 10 years ago. Kelson is a chief financial officer, most recently for a company in Carlsbad, Calif. After Kelson’s mother died, he decided to take his father on a road trip to Westbrook, Maine, where the Kelson family hailed from. They made a side trip to Philadelphia, with

His memorial gift was fitting, but also somewhat of a surprise. Keith Kelson grew up in Texas and lives in California. But tales of his father and grandfather created a “mythical” meaning about Penn Charter.

In the 1940 edition of the yearbook, the seniors dedicated their book to Everett Stanley Kelson, whom they described as “policeman, chaperone,

job well—we shall remember him as a symbol of the best in Penn Charter.” Perry Colby Kelson was a faculty kid: he attended Penn Charter from first grade until his graduation in 1941, and his father, Everett Stanley Kelson, was a teacher and director of the Upper School. After Perry Kelson’s death last March at age 94, his son and his three caregivers made the pilgrimage to Philadelphia to inter his ashes—and visit his old school.

In a telephone interview this summer from California, Kelson explained that Penn Charter had achieved a “mythical place” in his mind because of the stories his father told about his PC experiences. He listed what made the school so special to his father: “The incredible lifelong friendships, the leadership skills, the camaraderie. He spoke highly of many of the teachers he had.” These attributes reverberated with the son as they toured the school that day. Though nearly 70 years had passed since his father graduated, in many ways the school remained the same. Perry Kelson died earlier this year at age 94. Keith Kelson made the pilgrimage back to Philadelphia to inter his father’s ashes in the family plot at Arlington Cemetery, in Drexel Hill. This time, the younger Kelson came with three women who had acted as his father’s caregivers in his final years. “They became like daughters to him,” he said. “And I consider them sisters.” They, too, wanted to see this mythical place.

Kelson explained that Penn Charter had achieved a “mythical place” in his mind because of the stories his father told about his PC experiences. Officer Jack Rogers greeted and toured the group when they arrived at PC. And a few days before the visit, when Kelson told Ford he was having trouble getting a minister for a graveside service, Ford said: “I think I can help you.”

He enlisted recently retired PC mathematics teacher Bruce MacCullough, who is a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary. Kelson recalls that MacCullough “did a wonderful eulogy.” So the bond remains unbroken. PC

This teacher goes the extra mile for her students both inside and outside of the classroom and extends concern in the many acts of kindness that are known only to her and her students,” Ford said. “The winner of the Barbara Hancock Miller Teacher Appreciation Award is … Shahidah Kalam Id-Din.” The room erupted in spontaneous and loud applause from 200+ colleagues signaling their approval of the choice. Kalam Id-Din sat quietly, in shock. “I’m still in shock that I was selected,” she said months later. The teaching award was surpassed in shock value just weeks later when Kalam Id-Din, who tried unsuccessfully for 10 years to have a child, received THE call. Her foster care agency reported that a baby girl, born early and with some challenges, needed a home. Could Kalam Id-Din be at St. Christopher’s Children’s Hospital by 6 p.m. that day to pick up her new daughter? Recalling the moment she first held the child, Kalam Id-Din said: “She smiled at me, and my heart just expanded.” The $5,000 no-strings-attached Miller award, coming when

it did, is “a godsend.” It has funded a crib and carseat from the Toys “R” Us going-out-of business sale, plus clothes and supplies for baby Ayinde. And, in the fall, the money from the Miller award will help with the cost of daycare — because Kalam Id-Din will continue to teach at Penn Charter, of course. Kalam Id-Din describes her academic and professional life as “a love story. You enter a place and something magical happens. That’s how I felt about Haverford [College] and that’s how I felt about teaching, and that’s how I felt about Penn Charter.” Kalam Id-Din grew up in Philadelphia, attended an Islamic school, graduated from Haverford College, taught briefly at Penn Charter, moved to Boston and taught at a charter school, received an MEd from Harvard University, and — in her last stop before returning to teach at Penn Charter in 2011 — taught in the graduate school of education at George Mason University. “Quaker education and philosophy have influenced me,” she explained, “and Penn Charter and the people at Penn Charter have influenced the kind of teacher I’ve become.” “First and foremost,” she said of her philosophy of teaching, “it’s important for children to be known, to be in community, and to learn how to listen to others and help them be known. “I learned the importance of this myself because I was often the only Muslim in an institution and I had to figure out how to belong. Haverford College did that for me, and so did Penn Charter. Both are places where you are able to enhance and nurture your uniqueness and where you can know others and be known.” What has made teaching “fun” is being a co-learner with the students. “Every time I go into a classroom I am learning not just about the students and their stories, I’m learning how they think, and I’m figuring out how to entice them to discover what their best is. A lot of times we don’t know what our best is — I want them to really push the contours of that.”

I will tell her,” he said, adding, in so many words, that he expects to get yelled at when she does find out. One unusual aspect of the award is that the recipient is not required to use it to further their education, or finance a sabbatical or for another teaching-focused purpose. “They can go to Vegas or take their spouse on the honeymoon they never had. Get a diamond ring,” Miller said insistently. “I want no strings attached.” The award is not to make them better teachers, but to reward them for being special teachers. PC

award after another teacher, his wife, Barbara Hancock Miller. Barbara, who began teaching in the 1970s and recently retired, was a middle school and special education teacher in the Hanover School District and the Southwestern School District, both in York County, Pa. “She loves teaching,” her husband said. “She wants to nurture and develop the person and build a relationship with kindness and compassion. That is as important to her as her students learning to read, write and be competent in math.” Miller himself taught school, while he got a master’s degree from Villanova University. But his father was a funeral director and the son had worked in the business since he was 12. Miller became a funeral director too, and currently operates and works

THE TEACHER RECOGNITION FUND is the second Miller-endowed fund. The first was established in memory of the Miller’s late son, Bennett Tyler Miller. Income from the Bennett Tyler Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund “will provide a scholarship for an eighth grade student, preferably from the Roxborough or Manayunk area, who is beginning his or her studies at Penn Charter. Warren Miller received grants that allowed him to attend Penn Charter. His parents’ decision to send him to Penn Charter, financial support from the school, and the sacrifices from his family made all the difference in his life.”

QUAKERISM AND FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

GRANDPARENTS HONOR

Family Connection with St. James School When Robert Muir and his wife, Denise, visited their grandson in pre-K for Family Visiting Day last year, they were struck by the experience. “The place felt safe, warm,” Muir said. “It was comfortable, all the children were engaged, all the teachers were engaged. These kids were thoroughly enjoying the learning experience. And my grandson loves the place.” During the many Visiting Day activities, pre-K students and family members teamed up to draw a community mural, decorate picture frames, “graffiti” black-and-white photos of the students with mustaches, glasses, etc., and play a guessing game with antiques called “What is it?” (Grandparents were better at this than the children, but the kids had funnier guesses!) After that visit, Muir thought, “If I’m going to write a check, why not this place?” It felt right. Muir has donated to his own alma maters before. At Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, he graduated with the first class that included women. He appreciates groundbreakers, and so he made a gift to the school in his daughters’ names to benefit female students. The Muir family can’t help but have a keen respect for education. Their family tree is filled with teachers: Robert’s father and sister; Denise’s father, brother and sister. Denise herself was a teacher and coach. And right out of college, Robert taught math to grades seven, eight and nine. “They walk in as children, and they leave as adults,” he recalled of his experience. “Never a dull moment.” Robert and Denise Muir’s Penn Charter gift, in fact, is designed to honor many of the family’s experiences. It benefits a middle school graduate of St. James School, a Penn Charter service partner in nearby Allegheny West with students in grades four through eight. Their son-in-law Eric Dolaway is the former executive director of the Urban Blazers Foundation, a nonprofit that partnered with St. James and other organizations in under-resourced neighborhoods to offer kids

experiences like camping, hiking, rafting and rock-climbing. Dolaway, who has been involved with St. James since it opened its doors in 2011, has also taught classes on team building, conflict resolution and environmental education. When Dolaway took Muir to visit St. James, “I figured I’d be there 20 minutes—in and out,” Muir said. Instead, “I was so warmly received. I had lunch with [Head of School] David Kasievich, a couple of teachers, six kids. I was in the kitchen, labs, playground, hen house. I learned about what they do there.” What they do there is impressive. St. James is an Episcopal school serving a low-income neighborhood in North Philadelphia. It boasts small class-sizes, an extended-day program, a vegetable garden and a commercial-quality kitchen for learning how to prepare healthy meals. Each student receives a full scholarship, and one of the goals is to prepare graduates to succeed in high school. “How do you beat that?” Muir said. “Someone has made a stake and a commitment to a neighborhood. That’s good stuff.” Robert and Denise Muir named the Muir/Dolaway Family Scholarship Fund in honor of their daughter Amanda, son-inlaw Eric, and grandchildren Chace and Theodore. “I hope it offers students an experience they otherwise wouldn’t be able to have access to.” Muir said. “… I hope it gets them in a position to one day give back.” PC

LESSONS LEARNED Through Athletics

By Bob Brickley’s own account, his baseball career at Penn Charter was awkward. Difficult even. So, it is perhaps unlikely that he would make a significant donation to help build PC’s new baseball field. But to Brickley it makes perfect sense.

“This was a huge setback for me,” remembered Brickley, who had excelled at football, making all-InterAc. He ended up coaching third base for the season. In the end, Penn Charter clinched the Inter-Ac championship early, with one league game still on the schedule. Fifty-five years later, Brickley remembers it clearly. “Bob,” Palaia said, “Our final game against Malvern is yours.”

“I went out and pitched against Malvern and pitched a one-hitter,” Brickley recalled. “An angry kid came off the field and gave [Palaia] the glare I thought he deserved.” Brickley went on to Trinity College, where he captained the baseball team. He was scouted by the San Francisco Giants, but blindness in his left eye shortened his brief stint in the minor leagues.

Legendary, 14-time Inter-Ac winning coach Ralph Palaia was head coach in 1963, Brickley’s senior year. At the start of the season, three varsity pitchers were vying for two starting slots. “Coach Palaia called us into his office and said, ‘We have four pre-season games.’” Brickley recalled. “Based on the team’s performance in those pre-season games, [Palaia] would choose two starting pitchers. I won two of the games and saved one. So by performance I thought I’d be the first one picked.” Instead, Brickley was benched. He would later learn that Palaia had pre-selected his starting pitchers. He wanted a left-hander and a righthander; the other right-hander was Skip Gable, captain of the team. Teammate Steve Cushmore would be the starting left-hander.

2017-18 Annual Report of Gifts


At his recent 55th PC reunion, he commiserated and laughed over that baseball season—and that glare he gave Palaia—with Buff Weigand, longtime history teacher and coach. Weigand, assistant baseball coach back then, had encouraged him to stick it out. “Keep your poise, boys,” was Weigand’s signature phrase. He assured Brickley that he had kept his poise.

“The moral,” Brickley said, “is that despite that awkwardness … one of the greatest experiences I had at PC was the adversity of my baseball experience. You actually benefit more from loss than gain.” Brickley’s reflective nature serves him well in his current role as a life coach. Earlier careers in the insurance and financial services industries taught him that the way to grow a business is to grow your people. “Human dynamics are my passion and my expertise,” he said. He uses his life’s experiences to coach others today at age 73.

“I gutted it out,” Brickley recalled. “I didn’t quit. Something I stress often with my five beautiful grandchildren. A pitcher, Bob Brickley spent most of his senior year coaching third base.

“Years ago I learned that the Chinese sign for adversity and opportunity is the same sign. With every problem there is a flip side. Every problem brings with it a corresponding opportunity.”

“So my point is that you grow more when you lose, when you are mentally and spiritually challenged. That was the great takeaway from something I deemed not to be fair. But when I look back after 50-plus years, it was probably the greatest takeaway from all my wonderful years at Penn Charter.” PC

HONORING THE PAST Planning for the Future

Known as Buck or Bucky, to his friends, Bradford Morris Gearinger OPC ’58 and his wife, Paula, returned to Penn Charter for his 25th reunion, in 1983.

“Pretty good for an ambulance chaser,” she quipped, fondly. Gearinger died on May 30, 2017; the bar association’s award was renamed posthumously.

Chief Development Officer Jack Rogers Hon. 1689 was great friends with Gearinger. “Buck was an everyman; the sweetest guy with a great family. I loved him.” Rogers said. “He had a big impact on the Class of 1958 Fund.”

“We walked in to Timmons House,” Paula Gearinger, his widow, recalled, “and two men handing out nametags had their backs to us. They turned around, saw Buck and exclaimed, ‘Why, it’s Bucky!’ And from that moment on, they were reminiscing

In 2008, Gearinger gave $10,000 to the Class of 1958 Memorial Fund for Faculty, which his class established to recognize the 50th reunion. He and others worked to inspire their classmates, and the fund grew.

about old times and it was like 1958 all over again. I witnessed time travel that weekend,” she joked. When not time-traveling back to days at Old Penn Charter, Gearinger was a Vanderbilt Law-educated attorney, living in Akron, Ohio. A personal injury lawyer at a firm he and his law partner started after working in insurance defense, Gearinger did well. “He was very highly regarded among his colleagues,” said Paula Gearinger. So highly, in fact, that the Akron Bar Association renamed its professionalism award after Buck.

who called and visited him. Fellow PC lifer and classmate Bill Weart and his wife, Stevie, visited Buck and Paula in Akron regularly. “Bill was very close to Buck,” Stevie said. “They remained friends to their death. They argued a lot about politics, but they were secure in their friendship.”

Bradford “Buck” Gearinger OPC ’58, who was the class historian, was a lifer at Penn Charter. Charged with taking record of those who came and departed each year, and notable events of the class, Gearinger was very connected to Penn Charter, especially his classmates.

Gearinger loved Penn Charter. Class historian for ’58, he relished his friendships and stayed in touch with many, and was grateful to those

“Buck really appreciated his education at Penn Charter and felt it prepped him for his career,” said Paula Gearinger. “And, Buck appreciated the sacrifices his parents made for him [to attend Penn Charter]. There was a lot of wealth at PC, but he wanted to contribute what he could,” she said. After the 50th, Gearinger set up a charitable remainder trust so that he

and Paula could draw from it while they were living, and Penn Charter would receive what remained. But, following Buck’s death in May 2017, Paula Gearinger decided to arrange her finances in a way that meant Penn Charter received the remainder, just over $253,200, earlier than expected. The majority of the funds from the Gearinger trust – $250,000 – was directed to the Class of 1958 Memorial Fund for Faculty, once again a significant boost to the fund, propelling the total past $340,000.

The balance of the trust, $3,200, was given to the Annual Fund. A humble man, as Rogers called him, Gearinger would say he wasn’t a stellar student. But his wife begs to differ. “Buck was intelligent,” Paula said. “He read a lot. He said his educational institutions – Penn Charter, Sewanee: The University of the South, Vanderbilt Law – taught him to think.” The Penn Charter faculty, those he honored with gifts to the fund, were among the first who gave him the tools for critical thinking.

A charitable remainder trust can generate income in a donor’s lifetime, with the balance flowing to Penn Charter. To learn more about how you can include Penn Charter in your estate plans, please contact Chief Development Officer Jack Rogers at jarogers@penncharter.com or 215-844-3460 ext. 111.

Class of 1958 Memorial Fund for Faculty Established by the Class of 1958 at their 50th reunion to honor classmates who have passed away and in recognition of faculty who taught them. This particular fund is unique in that it serves to provide additional financial support to an exceptional faculty member who has shown extraordinary talent and leadership both in the classroom and in other areas of student life. With this fund, the Class of 1958 wants to celebrate and honor the unparalleled dedication of a particular individual who epitomizes the true spirit of character that is the Penn Charter teacher.

John Flagg Gummere Library Fund

Andrew R. McCown Memorial Library Fund

In December of 1964 Penn Charter received a gift from the Crystal Trust to construct and endow a new library building. From 1951 to the mid1960s, Penn Charter’s enrollment had increased at such an astounding rate as to quickly outgrow the existing library. The new facility was dedicated in the fall of 1967 and named the John F. Gummere Library, in recognition of Dr. Gummere’s outstanding service as Penn Charter’s headmaster and for his great love of books.

Established in 1952.

This fund was established by the parents of John McCown OPC ’36, who lost his life in World War II, and Andrew McCown Jr., who died while a student in the fifth grade.

Ed’s love of books and expert leadership made the library a vital and lively part of Penn Charter. His wife Jean’s deep dedication to the school and to its students is fondly remembered by our community. Established in 1983, this fund honors Ed and Jean’s contributions to the life of Penn Charter and supports the library they loved so much.

Spiers and Porter Library Fund Established in honor of the school’s two most notable masters – Isidore H. B. Spiers, French and English master for 44 years (1885-1929), and Isaac W. Porter, artist and physical education teacher for 44 years (1886-1930), “a maker of men.”

Pauline Trask Library Fund This fund honors Lower School teacher Pauline Trask, who taught at Penn Charter for 12 years and was the administrative director of the Lower School for part of that time. She died in an airplane accident near Pittsburgh in 1937.

Endowed Funds and Gifts Grace Fund Established in 2008, the Grace Fund, Penn Charter’s full access fund, honors the late Grace Russell, a Penn Charter overseer, parent and grandparent. The Grace Fund is designed to cover the costs of items and events not covered by tuition, and therefore also not funded by scholarship awards. These additional items are varied and many, including but not limited to: field trips, calculators, textbooks, musical instruments and track shoes. For some families these are all minor expenditures, for others they may be prohibitive, therefore depriving those students access to the full Penn Charter experience.

Matt embodied what it means to be a part of the Penn Charter family, having served as senior class president and then returning to work at the school as a fund-raiser to help ensure the school could continue to provide the same great experience for kids that he himself enjoyed. The Matt Miller Fund will support the continued creation and ongoing maintenance of the Matt Miller Memorial Garden in Chigwell Close. The garden was designed to create a gathering and learning space to help further the values that Matt held so dearly: friendship and camaraderie, true enjoyment of life, freedom to be oneself, personal character and leadership. To sustain the garden’s function as an outdoor classroom, the fund may also be used to support academic programs that utilize the facilities of the space. Michael and Ruth Aichenbaum Hunter B.
