Your Gift Matters

GPS relies on the generous support of alumnae, parents, grandparents, and friends.

Gifts to GPS provide flexible resources that have a significant impact on every aspect of the school—students, teachers, and programs. This includes, but is not limited to: fine arts and humanities, new courses, financial aid, salaries and professional development for faculty and staff, athletics, and technology. The greatest strength of these funds is that they enable the school’s Administration and Board of Trustees to react quickly to our students’ needs on a daily basis with a degree of financial flexibility.

There are various ways you can support the school, and every gift makes a difference. Thank you for your belief in what we do for girls and your ongoing support!
