Two Incredible Campaign Gifts from Revered Faculty

Mac Jacoby and Rob Bordley

Estate Gift from Maclear Jacoby Jr and Estate Gift Intention by Donna and Robinson Bordley '66

Gift from the Estate of Maclear Jacoby Jr. 

Mac and Tennis Alumni


The impact of Maclear "Mac" Jacoby Jr. as a Landon School administrator, teacher, coach, mentor, and friend is inspiring.  His full life was in many ways defined by service and dedication.  He served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II and in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War. As a member of the Air Force Reserves, he rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.  He joined St. Francis Episcopal Church in Potomac, MD, in the late 1950s and was the church's longest-serving parishioner.  And Mac's tenure at Landon spanned seven decades, making him, not surprisingly, our longest-serving staff member.   

It is with great appreciation that we share with the community that Landon was gifted $200,000 from the Estate of Maclear Jacoby Jr. Mac's gift will be directed equally to The Maclear Jacoby Jr Endowed Chair in Mathematics established by Ann and Knight Kiplinger '65, The Kiplinger Foundation, Robert Fogarty '69, and Pierce Smith '62 and the Maclear Jacoby Jr. Endowed Fund established by Leslie and Bruce McNair '73 to honor Mac's legacy by supporting our tennis program. 

As a result of his most generous estate gift, the endowments honoring Mac have now surpassed $1 million.  We are grateful to our many benefactors for ensuring Maclear Jacoby Jr.'s legacy will always remain with us.

Estate Gift Intention by Donna and Robinson Bordley '66 

Donna and Rob Bordley '66 and their sons John '00 and Austin '03 will establish the Bordley Family Endowed Fund through an estate bequest of $100,000. The Bordleys were inspired by the profound commitment of the men and women who have stewarded the Landon campus.  For over ninety-four years, the playing fields, academic facilities, Perkins Garden, and Farmhouse have been nurtured with the care of the buildings and grounds staff.  The Bordley family has made this bequest to ensure funding will be available in perpetuity to maintain the Landon School buildings and grounds so that future generations of Bears will enjoy this magnificent campus.  

Our deepest thanks to our generous benefactors who are helping us realize our strategic vision to enhance and grow our endowment. For more information about The Campaign for Landon, please visit our website.
