Claire Phipps

Chief Advancement & Experience Officer


Fifteen years ago, Claire Phipps would have never guessed she’d be the Chief Advancement and Experience Officer at GORDON SCHOOL. Claire studied fine arts and art history, but as she launched her professional career, she discovered a passion for fundraising, a job she describes as “building relationships, talking with interesting people, and supporting organizations you love – all at the same time.”

Claire’s role at Gordon entails a little bit of everything, but like everyone involved with the school, it’s defined by a commitment to leadership, compassion, and joyful learning experience. While she is only six months into her position, Claire knows she’s found her home. “It’s a series of decisions and coincidences that brought me to Gordon School today, and I’m so grateful to have wound up here.”

Claire hopes to connect with as many current and former Gordon families to hear their stories and share those with the larger community. “I love making those connections and sharing what we do to have a positive impact on society, here in Rhode Island and beyond.”
