Giving Day #ShowYourLoveGFS!

This campaign ended on February 15, 2020, but you can still make a gift to Germantown Friends School by clicking here!

Thank you all so much. We made it to 575 gifts, and beyond! We love our loyal donors!

Wow, we are really feeling the love. Thank you wonderful GFS community! We have unlocked a total of $165,000 in bonus gifts for GFS, and we couldn't be more grateful. It's not too late to give, though! Help us set a new record for participation today. Can we make it to 575 gifts by midnight?

We are thrilled to have reached 400 gifts! We aren't giving up though; we are still reaching higher!

A new challenge has been initiated by the parents of two recent graduates, along with one of our alumni who is also a current grandparent. 

They will give GFS $20,000 if we can secure an additional 50 gifts by midnight. Let's go Tigers!


Thanks to a huge wave of enthusiastic donors, we've exceeded our initial goal of 300 gifts. 

Thank you! 

We're reaching higher...

We are excited to announce that the GFS School Committee has stepped up with an additional challenge of $45,000 if we can reach 400 gifts by midnight.

Welcome to Giving Day, February 14, 2020! A great day to #ShowYourLoveGFS!

Our community has been challenged increase last year's goal of 200 donors!

If 300 people make a gift today, we secure a bonus gift of $100,000 for GFS!
