We are grateful for your generous support of the Governor’s School Foundation, a 501c(3) organization, through our Annual Fund Campaign. The Foundation’s Annual Fund Campaign plays a critical role in enhancing the educational experience students receive. Annual Fund gifts in 2020-21 will help us reach our our goal of raising $300,000 to directly support the following:
- student participation in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities;
- updated technology and equipment;
- additional faculty professional and gifted education training; and
- aid for students in financial need.
Your contributions have a huge impact on the school and its students, and all donations are tax-deductible.
