The Gannon Society

Named after Higher Achievement’s founder Greg Gannon, the Gannon Society closes the opportunity gap for our scholars through sustainable funding. This network of champions supports talented scholars in realizing their full potential and achieving success in high school and beyond.

Higher Achievement’s Gannon Society is a community of individuals who believe that talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not. By giving $1,000 or more annually with a three-year commitment, Gannon Society members are investing in the future of our communities through the young leaders who will shape it.
