Foundation Annual Fund Campaign

This past Friday, members of our Richmond Alumni Chapter welcomed members of the Class of 2011 into our network of over 2,400 alumni world-wide. Part of the Foundation’s mission is to keep alumni connected to the school, which includes supporting regional alumni chapters.

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 $185,029 for the school, which is 93% of our $200,000 goal. Overall current parent participation is 66%, and here is the parent participation by class:
  • Senior parents: 63%
  • Junior parents: 70%
  • Sophomore parents: 69%
  • Freshmen parents: 64%
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.
