About

Welcome to the first ever GFA Giving Day!

Join us in honoring the people and programs that have shaped our school’s history, and the innovation that inspires our bright future. We are so excited to have GFA families, alumni, and friends participate in this special day. In honor of our founding year, and the nearing centennial, our goal is to raise $192,500 in support of GFA. We have until midnight on May 11 to reach this ambitious goal.

All gifts will be matched 1:1! 

GFA current and former board members have come forward with an incredible display of generosity offering to match all gifts one to one until we reach our goal of $192,500.
