Capital gifts are designated for a specific use or initiative, such as the construction or renovation of a facility. These gifts are often given in conjunction with a capital campaign. Every building on Charlotte Latin's campus is the direct result of generous capital gifts from members of the Latin community. As one walks the campus, take note of “Shelton” Hall, The “Knight” External Affairs Building, the “Horne” Performing Arts Center, “Belk” Gymnasium, and the “Beck” Student Activities Center. These buildings were supported by many people and often are dedicated in honor of someone. This generosity is a testament to the value that the Latin community places on a Charlotte Latin education and to the commitment to sustain the core values that are instilled in Latin students every day. The School partners with members of the Latin community to marry their philanthropic interests and passions with the institutional needs and priorities of the School, as identified by the Board of Trustees and administration. Each capital gift is unique, and a gift may qualify for naming rights when the gift meets the School's criteria.
