About


We need your help with The Gould Fund, GivingTuesday 2021!

Goal:  Raise $100,000 with 400 donors by November 30th, 2021.

Impact:  A direct contribution to the Gould Fund supports the programs, traditions, and experiences that matter to you.  

Timeline: Kick-off for GivingTuesday is November 16, and closes on Tuesday, November 30th.  

Why:  The Gould Fund is how we are able to offer an exceptional experience for our students, year after year. It is more than a ritual ask, it is how our community flexes our philanthropic muscle and provides the “special sauce” that makes a year at Gould come alive.  

Action:  Please consider contributing to the Gould fund today and spreading the message within your Gould networks.
