什么是年度基金?

年度基金 is Grace’s philanthropic priority, making up part of the school’s yearly operating budget. It helps bridge the difference between tuition and the full cost of the Grace experience. 年度基金 makes a robust curriculum possible; maintains and enhances our campuses; allows Grace to attract, 保留, and hire 教职员工 of exceptional skill and character; ensures that students receiving financial assistance have access to the full breadth of the school’s co-curricular offerings; provides the resources to invest in vital technology upgrades; and helps ensure that the Grace community remains one in which everyone can find their place.
 
We ask the entire community—parents, 校友, 校友家长, 爷爷奶奶, 教职员工, and friends of the school—to participate. We ask everyone in the community to participate and give as generously as they can to ensure that every student can experience the magic of Grace.

Is the Annual Fund the best way to support Grace?

是的! 年度基金 is part of the school’s yearly operating budget. Donations help ensure that our students receive the most comprehensive educational experience.

我应该什么时候送礼物?

We ask that you make your gift or pledge as early as possible. Because the Annual Fund is part of the school’s yearly operating expenses, and donations are spent in the year that they are received, giving early enables Grace to take advantage of every opportunity throughout the school year, maximizing Grace’s ability to continue providing the best education for every student.
 

What does the Annual Fund support?

年度基金 supports all aspects of educating our students and running the school. 这包括: 

  • 开发新课程
  • 科技和校园升级

  • 程序ming (ex: partnerships with leading cultural institutions and field trips, robust offerings in the arts and athletics)
  • 教师 and 工作人员 salaries and benefits
  • 还有更多!

我应该给多少钱?

We ask that you make the Annual Fund your philanthropic priority and give at the level that you are comfortable, which will look different for everyone. Gifts have ranged in size from $5 to $100,000+.

Does my participation in the Annual Fund really matter?

绝对. 年度基金 has a twofold goal: financial and participation. Every gift demonstrates a commitment to each other and the mission and values of Grace and shows prospective families and foundations the strength of the GCS community.

我获得经济援助. Will giving to the Annual Fund count against me? Wouldn’t my gift just give the school back the money it gives my family?

No, gifts to the Annual Fund do not affect financial aid packages. We ask every family to participate in the Annual Fund as this is a community effort.

Are donations to the Annual Fund tax-deductible?
