Making a Difference
Like all independent schools, GSES tuition does not cover the full cost to provide a quality education for each student. Fundraising efforts bridge the gap, allowing tuition to remain affordable for more families. These contributions are a part of the current year’s operating budget and help provide resources for important items such as teacher salaries, financial assistance, technology, and building improvements.
The Development committee works closely with the Board of Trustees, the PTO and school administration to support ongoing program needs.
There are several different ways that you can support GSES, including:
- Annual Fund Giving
- Special Events Participation
- Matching Gifts
- … and more!
Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated.
Ways to Give
Gifts to Good Shepherd Episcopal School can be made in a variety of ways. All gifts provide immediate benefits to the school and are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Contributions can be made online by credit using VISA or MasterCard. The gift can be paid all at once or by setting up a recurring, monthly installment plan.
Gifts of Cash
Please make checks payable to Good Shepherd Episcopal School. A cash gift entitles the donor to an income cash deduction in the year in which the gift is made.
Companies often sponsor matching gift programs that enhance their employees’ charitable contributions. When gifts are matched, GSES benefits from the increased donations and the donor often qualifies for a higher Gift Club category. Please contact your employer’s human resources department for information on matching gifts to schools.
