Today’s final Annual Fund video update from Mr. Bradley was filmed on the GRACE athletic field where tonight we will honor the seniors on the team. We may not know where each senior will end up, but we know that we have carefully stewarded the mission to equip them for life and pray that the lessons they have learned at GRACE, inside and outside the classroom, will serve them well in the years ahead. We invite the entire GRACE family to attend tonight’s celebration (p.s. there will be cake)!
Thank you to everyone who has participated in this year’s Annual Fund. Whether you are giving now, or let us know of your future intentions, we appreciate your commitment to GRACE. We hope to see you tonight on the football field where we will be serving cake to celebrate the conclusion of this year’s Annual Fund campaign. Remember, your investment in the GRACE Annual Fund directly benefits your students. When you invest in GRACE, you are investing in their future.
Your investment in GRACE allows us to equip, challenge and inspire your children to impact their world for Christ and, if you have not already done so, we invite you to make a gift now to the Annual Fund.

Today’s Annual Fund video update from Mr. Bradley focuses on the contributions that GRACE business partners make on our school. Their contributions each year are an essential part of our Annual Fund and allow us to get more projects done quicker. We appreciate the support of these 13 GRACE-family-owned businesses who have partnered with us this year. We encourage the GRACE family to choose our business partners when you have a need for their products/services.
All investments in the GRACE Annual Fund allow us to equip, challenge and inspire your children to impact their world for Christ. Please join our Business Partners and support GRACE above and beyond tuition by making a gift this year to the Annual Fund. Please make your commitment (or let us know about the giving you are already doing) by filling out the 2018-2019 Annual Fund Commitment Card.
As we near the end of our 2018-2019 Annual Fund campaign, I want to say thank you to all of you who have already made a commitment to support GRACE this year, either with a donation now, an end-of-year gift, or a promise to give at next spring’s Celebrate GRACE event. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. As we seek outside funding in the future, the level of participation evidenced by our community makes a difference in those discussions.
Mr. Bradley’s Annual Fund video update was recorded on the recently renovated floors in the lower campus. While flooring may not be exciting, having a building that we can enjoy and be proud of is. We recently overheard visitors from one of our sports opponents comment on how nice our building was. Keeping the building looking good is something that the Annual Fund has been used for.
Today we also released a video interview with Darrel and Kathy Hegar, parents of two GRACE graduates. The Hegars speak to how connected they felt to the GRACE community of teachers and parents, how GRACE prepared both their boys well for college, and how they view their investment in GRACE as a direct investment into the future of their children. Please take a moment to watch their interview and hear their advice.
Your investment in the GRACE Annual Fund allows us to equip, challenge, and inspire your children to impact their world for Christ and we invite you to prayerfully consider making a gift this year’s Annual Fund campaign. Please make your commitment (or let us know about the giving you are already doing) by filling out the 2018-2019 Annual Fund Commitment Card.
In today’s Annual Fund video update, Mr. Bradley highlights the importance that the Annual Fund plays in providing great facilities for our students. This update was filmed in front of the lower campus playground, which was renovated several years ago with contributions made to the Annual Fund. Investing in GRACE today ensures that both current and future GRACE students will benefit in a variety of ways. Previous Annual Fund contributions paid for the renovated second floor of the Upper Campus, upgrading our HVAC system, and many other “behind the scenes” improvements. Please prayerfully consider making a gift this year to the Annual Fund.
The GRACE Annual Fund campaign continues through the end of this week. In case you missed it yesterday, please watch the alumni video of Kira that was posted yesterday and hear from her how GRACE prepared her for success at Wake Forest University and how she remains connected to the GRACE community today. We want GRACE to be a place where we can equip students to be successful in whatever they choose to pursue. Your investment in the Annual Fund helps us equip more students like Kira.
