Annual Giving

Good Shepherd is rooted in a history of inspiration.

Like people, institutions change and grow. Our predecessors have built a foundation of values, mission, and history. Now, it’s our turn to move GSES forward, to see who and what we can become together. Your support of the GSES Annual Fund is critical to the future of our school and our steadfast commitment to improving our curriculum, facilities, and programs. Thank you!

What Inspires Us?

Inspired by possibility, we empower students with curiosity, knowledge, and confidence that leads them to be their best, both while at GSES and beyond. In turn, the students inspire us to continually grow and thrive as a community. When students are encouraged to be themselves, the possibilities are endless.

Where Do We Find Our Strength?

Strengthened by diversity, we believe children should feel enriched by their experiences and relationships with people who come from a variety of backgrounds. Our school environment celebrates each child’s unique perspective. When children learn to value people who are different from themselves, they are better prepared to live peacefully in a diverse world.

Why is Participation Important?

A community that has a high participation rate among parents, faculty, staff, and board members is a key factor when charitable foundations consider a gift to the school. Your gift demonstrates community involvement, which attracts outside funding and helps in our accreditation efforts.


Why Doesn't Tuition Cover All Educational Costs?

GSES sets tuition at the lowest cost possible to make a GSES education an affordable option for as many families as possible and to encourage diversity. Charitable gifts provide financial stability and the resources necessary for an optimal educational environment.
