Every gift to the Annual Fund has an immediate and significant impact.
The Annual Fund allows the school to be responsive, innovative, and to take advantage of new opportunities. This has always been at the core of GCDS, and it is through the community’s generous support that the school is able to provide meaningful experiences to each student. The Annual Fund is built into GCDS’s annual operating budget and supports and enhances all aspects of our programming.
The Annual Fund helps pay for everything from faculty salaries and professional development opportunities to new curriculum initiatives, from financial assistance programs to technology maintenance and upgrades, from the electricity needed to keep the lights on to supplies and books. It helps GCDS attract and retain a talented and committed faculty and provides support for extracurricular activities, clubs, sports, arts initiatives and other programs. 100% of GCDS students benefit from the Annual Fund each day.
Your participation in the Annual Fund reflects the strength of our community and our shared commitment.
