Dear Dawn,

It is our pleasure to offer you a position at Gap Inc. This letter sets forth our offer to you to join Gap Inc. (the “Company”) as Division President, Old Navy. In this position you will report to Paul Pressler, President and Chief Executive Officer, Gap Inc.

You should not take any steps in reliance on this offer until these contingencies have been satisfied.

Salary. Your annual salary will be U.S. $900,000, payable every two weeks. Your first performance and compensation review will occur no later than March 2008.

Initial Bonus. In addition to your salary, you will receive a bonus of U.S. $300,000 in January 2007, provided you are employed on the date of payment. This will be processed as supplemental income and is subject to supplemental taxes. In the event you voluntarily terminate your employment or your employment is terminated For Cause, you will be required to repay within ninety (90) days of your last day of employment 100% of this bonus if the termination occurs within the first anniversary of the date of payment, and 50% of this bonus if termination occurs between the first and second anniversary of the date of payment. The term “For Cause” shall mean a good faith determination by the Company that your employment be terminated for any of the following reasons: (1) indictment, conviction or admission of any crimes involving theft, fraud or moral turpitude; (2) engaging in gross neglect of duties, including willfully failing or refusing to implement or follow direction of the Company; or (3) breaching Gap Inc.’s policies and procedures, including, but not limited to the Code of Business Conduct.

Annual Bonus. Based on your position as a Division President, beginning in Fiscal 2007 you will be eligible for an annual bonus based on achievement of Gap Inc. and/or Division financial objectives as well as operational goals. You are not eligible to participate in the program for fiscal 2006 (February 2006 – January 2007). Under the current program, your annual target bonus will be 75% of your base salary. Depending on results, your actual bonus, if any, may be higher or lower and can reach a maximum of 150%. Any bonus payments will be prorated based on active time in position, divisional or country assignment and changes in base salary or incentive target that may occur during the fiscal year. Bonuses for fiscal 2007, if any, are scheduled for payment in March 2008 and you must be employed by Gap Inc. on the payment date with a performance rating of “On Target” or above to receive an award.

Stock Options. Subject to approval by the Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board of Directors (“the Committee”) and the provisions of Gap Inc.’s stock option plan, you will be granted options to purchase 600,000 shares of Gap Inc. common stock on the date when the options are approved by the Committee (the “date of grant”), which will be within ninety days of your first date of employment. The option price shall be determined by the fair market value of the stock on the date of grant. These options will become vested and exercisable as shown in the schedule below, provided you are employed by the Company on the vesting date. These options must be exercised within ten years from the date of grant or within three months of your employment termination, whichever is earlier, or you will lose your right to do so.

Option to purchase 150,000 shares vesting two years from date of grant

Option to purchase 150,000 shares vesting three years from date of grant

Option to purchase 150,000 shares vesting four years from date of grant

Performance Stock Awards. Based on your position as a Division President, beginning in Fiscal 2007 you are eligible for performance stock awards. Performance stock awards reward achievement of Gap Inc. and/or division financial objectives. You are not eligible to participate in the program for fiscal 2006 (February 2006 – January 2007). Under the current program, your annual target for this program is equal to 40% of your base salary. Depending on results, your actual performance stock award, if any, may be higher or lower and can reach a maximum of 80%. Performance stock awards will be prorated based on active time in position, changes in base salary, or changes to the performance stock award target that may occur during the fiscal year. Awards are made in the form of performance units that are paid in Gap Inc. stock upon vesting. For fiscal 2007, the award of your performance units, if any, is scheduled to be made in March 2008 provided you are employed by the Company on the date of the award with a performance rating of “On Target” or above. The number of performance units will be determined in March 2008 by dividing the value of the award as a percentage of base salary by the fair market value of Gap Inc. common stock on the award date, rounded down to the nearest whole performance unit. The award will vest 50% two years from the date of grant and 50% three years from the date of grant provided you are employed by the Company on the vesting date. Awards are subject to approval by the Committee and the provisions of Gap Inc.’s stock plan. Gap Inc. has the right to modify the program at any time. Management discretion can be used to modify the final award amount. Awards are subject to income tax withholding upon vesting.

You may be eligible for future Long-Term Incentive Awards as a participant in the Focal Review process.

Benefits. Gap Inc. offers a competitive benefits package designed to assist you in securing your financial future and managing your work and personal life. In addition to medical, dental, vision, life and income protection, you are eligible for Gap Inc.’s LifeStyle Benefits, which include an Employee Assistance Program, home loan services and tuition reimbursement. Gap Inc. also offers an Employee Stock Purchase Plan, a 401(k) plan with a generous dollar for dollar company match up to four percent of your pay (limited as provided in the plan), and employee discounts toward merchandise you purchase in our stores as gifts, or for yourself and your eligible dependents. You will be eligible for thirty (30) days of Paid Time Off on an annual basis in addition to Company-paid holidays. PTO accrues each pay period up to a cap based on regular hours paid, and can be used for vacation, illness or personal business. Please refer to the enclosed summary of the Company’s benefits for more information on our extensive benefits package.

Relocation. Gap Inc. will reimburse you for your relocation expenses related to your move from Melbourne, Australia to San Francisco, California in accordance with the Company's relocation policy. Our Global Relocation Services Group will provide you with an outline of your relocation benefits and obligations. By signing this letter you agree to abide by the terms of the Company's relocation policy, including but not limited to the provision that requires you to pay back all or a portion of the amount spent on relocation should you leave the Company within two years of your hire date. A relocation administrator will call you to review the specific components of your relocation package and work with you throughout the relocation process. In the meantime, if you have questions, please call Pam Prestininzi, Director, Global Relocation Services at (800) 333-7899, x42410.

Tax Equalization. The Company will provide you with tax equalization on your employment-based income from Gap Inc. from your date of hire through December 31, 2006, excluding any income related to stock options. The intent of tax equalization is to minimize your tax costs associated with your maintaining tax residency in Australia for the balance of this calendar year. For purposes of tax equalization, your home location will be considered San Francisco, California. Tax equalization will ensure that you are taxed as if you are solely a resident of San Francisco. In order for the Company to complete your tax equalization calculation, you will be required to submit your finalized US and Australian tax returns to the Company’s designated tax provider.

Termination/Severance. In the event that your employment is involuntarily terminated from the Company for reasons other than For Cause from your first date of employment to your second employment anniversary, the Company will pay you your then current salary for six months (the “severance period”) in exchange for you signing a settlement agreement that includes but is not limited to a full release of any claims you may have against the Company. If you accept new employment or establish any other professional relationship (e.g. a consulting relationship) for which you are compensated during the severance period or if you breach your remaining obligations to the Company (e.g. your duty to protect confidential information, agreement not to solicit Company employees), such severance payments will cease. After your second anniversary, payments, if any, will be made pursuant to any then existing Gap Inc. policy regarding severance for which you are eligible. Payments will be made over the applicable time period succeeding your termination in accordance with section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code.

At any time, if you voluntarily resign your employment from Gap Inc. or your employment is terminated For Cause, you will receive no compensation, payment or benefits after your last day of employment. If your employment terminates for any reason, you will not be entitled to any payments, benefits, damages, award or compensation other than as provided in this offer.
