Gifts in Honor or Memory

Family and friends can honor or memorialize the legacy of a beloved family member or friend through tribute gifts. Whether honoring a significant event such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding, or birth of a child, tribute gifts are meaningful ways to acknowledge Solebury School’s impact.  

Throughout the year, we receive many gifts in honor of alumni, students, faculty, and staff—past and present. These gifts are special reminders of Solebury’s commitment to creating community and providing a sense of home for our students, their families, our beloved faculty, and dedicated staff while they are here. 

The connections made at Solebury truly last a lifetime, and these tribute gifts are a reminder of the lasting impressions our community makes on all of us who are fortunate enough to be part of it.

This year, the track and field team received new equipment thanks to the thoughtful support of Bradley Stein P’20, who generously donated an in memoriam gift in the name of Cory Stein. 

“Brad Stein's very generous donation has gone toward a complete and beautiful high jump pit, a new cover for our long and triple jump pit, as well as equipment to use for strength training and drills with all of our running programs. These gifts of equipment will help our athletes become stronger, quicker, more agile and confident athletes.  We can't thank Brad enough for his generosity.” —Terri Miller P'16 '18, Track Coach

The Robin Aipel Memorial Grove was created to honor a much-beloved member of our community. Robin Aipel liked to help things grow. She would plant and water, feed and prune so that our trees, flower beds, and the like would thrive. The results of her labor, and truly her legacy, are all over Solebury’s campus and enjoyed every day here. Robin loved Solebury School. She loved the serenity of the campus. She loved the moments she had with the students. She loved doing all she could to help the school be its best. 

Robin was the kind of person who connected those around her. Her kindness and her generosity of spirit were contagious and helped make Solebury a community, rather than simply a school.

Robin Aipel passed away in September 2019, leaving behind a loving family including her beloved Pete, also a former member of Solebury School’s maintenance team. Over the next year, Solebury School will establish the Robin Aipel Memorial Grove in her honor, filled with plants and trees that she would have loved. 

We are so thankful to the donors who supported these unique gifts to our community this year:
