Planned Estate Giving

The Dunbar Legacy Society is named in honor of James L. Dunbar, a 1949 graduate of Proctor Academy. Growing up with the misdiagnosed and misunderstood disability now known as dyslexia was very difficult for a child in the 1930s and ‘40s. At Proctor, Jim made friends and found teachers who really cared about his well-being and academic growth. In those blessed years at Proctor, his academic growth was mirrored by growing self-confidence and positive attitude, and that positive attitude became the key ingredient to his success in the years to come. After graduation from Proctor, Jim studied in college, and in 1956 launched his own company, Dunbar Armored, the largest independently owned company of its type in the United States until being aquired by the Brinks Co. in 2018.

The Dunbar Society was established to recognize all those who have made a provision for Proctor Academy through a bequest, trust, insurance or retirement policy, or other estate-planning vehicle. Jim is a visionary advocate for the advancement of Proctor and its programs. In addition to extraordinary annual and capital support that spans decades, he has made a generous gift to Proctor through a bequest. Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for Proctor.

It is a privilege to recognize alumni, parents, and friends who share in Jim’s vision for Proctor, and have included the school in their future philanthropy.

At the same time, I take immense satisfaction knowing that I am giving in return for the many blessings my family and I have received from Proctor. Your love for this school will perpetuate the Proctor experience for generations of young people—many of whom will benefit from the school’s extraordinary support programs. My dream for success came true. Together, we can make countless dreams come true.”
