Foundation Annual Fund Campaign

Did you know that the Foundation supports special needs for clubs, activities, and special events? One such grant is helping our Construction Challenge Team travel to Nevada for the National Championship this week.

The Construction Challenge Team was recently featured in one of John Ogle’s broadcasts for WCVE: http://ideastations.org/radio/archive/2011-03-21-maggie-walker-team-competing-in-las-vegas-this-week

The largest fundraising campaign to support the school is the Annual Fund Campaign. In addition to reaching out to current parents, the Annual Fund Campaign is supported by alumni, alumni parents, and other friends of the school.

So far this year, the Annual Fund Campaign has raised $171,613 for the school, which is 86% of our $200,000 goalOverall current parent participation is 62%, and here is the parent participation by class:
  • Senior parents: 60%
  • Junior parents: 66%
  • Sophomore parents: 64%
  • Freshmen parents: 60%
The Governor’s School Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign supports programs for students, grants for teacher continuing education, and special projects for facilities and equipment. If you have not yet donated, you may do so online at http://www.governorsschoolfoundation.org/makeadonation.html.
