Join Us In Supporting

The World We Build Together at GFA

Education is an act of world-building. At GFA, we believe our charge is to engage and mentor students in the hard work of shaping their own worlds. We tap into the joy of learning and the wonder of curiosity. We challenge them to dream, embrace new ideas and develop their own, then share them with the world. At every step of the journey, our community rises to meet students where they are and challenge them with new academic, athletic, artistic, and social-emotional benchmarks. Together, we develop minds that are ready for big visions and the successes that await them. Join us in supporting the GFA Annual Fund and the world we build together.

Answering the Call of "Quisque Pro Omnibus"

Our motto, "Each for All," calls on us to support one another in times of need. This is a moment for us to turn empathy into action. We are a strong and resilient community, and together we will weather this moment with the creativity, dedication, and compassion that are the hallmarks of GFA.

Annual Fund

A robust Annual Fund is instrumental in building a strong foundation for educational excellence. These gifts help our school by ensuring that all students have an experience that is tailored to their individual talents and interests. Just as all independent schools do, GFA relies on these gifts to support our extensive annual operations. 

 

GFA COVID-19 Relief Fund

GFA has recently established the GFA COVID-19 Relief Fund to support school families experiencing significant financial hardship due to the pandemic. Tax-deductible donations to this fund will help ensure that our community remains intact.
