Mark your Calendars: Annual Fund | October 14-23rd

Every Fall, we host our Annual Fund drive. Gifts given through the Annual Fund help us sustain and expand our vision and mission. In line with independent school best practices, GRACE works from a break-even operating budget—meaning to keep our tuition costs as low as possible for our families, we do not build in extra funds to tuition costs that allow us to dramatically grow programs and improve facilities.
This is why the GRACE Annual Fund is so critical to our growth and success as a school.
Our Annual Fund enables us to expand and improve our campus community without impacting our operating budget. Additionally, when applying for outside financial support and grants, these constituents request information about giving within the school. High levels of Annual Fund participation on behalf of our families, staff and board demonstrate a deep commitment to the mission of the school and increase the likelihood of receiving additional funding from external sources.
More information on how to give coming soon!

Helpful Hint from Nurse Natalie: Please make sure to pack an extra mask each day in your student's bookbag. We are finding that sometimes masks break or are misplaced throughout the day so having an extra on-hand is helpful.
