A Video Message from Ken Seward
Every day at Good Shepherd Episcopal School, we witness the impact single action can have on an entire school community. One gesture of kindness that inspires the generosity of spirit from many. One question during class that engages a lively and meaningful conversation. One experience that sparks a lifetime passion. One teacher that imprints on your heart and mind forever.
The same holds true for the Annual Fund, the cornerstone of Good Shepherd Episcopal School’s fundraising efforts that allows us to invest added resources and provide new opportunities for our exceptional child-centered program. Your single contribution has the capacity to impact the educational experience of all GSES students as well as the remarkable work of all GSES teachers. It signals your confidence in our mission of challenging each child to achieve academic excellence within a nurturing, Christian environment.
Why Give? Where Does the Money Go?
Give to the Annual fund because you believe in the work of our school, the dedication of our teachers, and the impact a GSES education will have on a child’s future.
The Annual Fund is critical to providing the support we need to help the students and school thrive. Your gift this year will enable us to pay for new playground equipment, our new library makerspace, mobile laptop cart, and benches and signage to create a more welcoming environment
How Much Should I Give and When?
As much as your family budget will allow! Whether your contribution is $5 or $10,000, it’s an affirmation statement of your passionate belief and pride in your family’s GSES experience.
The earlier we receive your donation, the earlier we can put it to work for all our students. We encourage all families to make their pledges by December 31, although payments are accepted until June 30.
