The GFA Fund

Through the collective power of many gifts, the GFA Fund helps to raise close to $3 million for Greens Farms Academy each year.

The GFA Fund is GFA’s annual immediate-use fund that allows for the strategic deployment of resources — where and when they are needed most — and enhances the school’s capacity to address emerging opportunities.

The GFA Fund impacts our students, staff, and faculty members every day. An important gauge of institutional strength, the fund supports the core components of the GFA experience. This resource is powerful in its immediacy, and it must be replenished every year to sustain our programs and fulfill the school’s mission.

The GFA Fund is the primary means for all parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends to help sustain the distinctive features that make GFA special.

The GFA Fund is and will always be the school’s highest philanthropic priority and the largest philanthropic contribution to the school on an annual basis. By supporting the school with a gift to the GFA Fund, you can help to anticipate and meet the ever-evolving needs of all students, faculty and staff, and the broader GFA community.

GFA is shaped by those who believe in and support its mission.
