The Alumni Financial Aid Fund
The Class of 1988 and the Class of 1993, in celebration and honor of their 30th and 25th Reunions, seek to join efforts in giving back to GA by making collective contributions to start an endowed scholarship fund designated to assist some of the most deserving and financially challenged students who have come to GA via the Community Partnership School (CPS) or the Steppingstone Scholars Program (SSP).
GOAL: Raise minimum of $100,000 in gifts
and pledges payable both now and over the next few years.
- Lately GA has experienced, as have all independent schools, a steep increase by applicant families for financial assistance.
- In fact, over the last 10 years, the percentage of students receiving assistance has increased from 14% to 29%, resulting in a tripling of dedicated budgeted dollars for financial aid need.
- The 12 currently enrolled students who attend GA from CPS and the SSP are among our students with the highest financial need.
- These hard-working individuals have immersed themselves into our proud GA community and, as a result, make us stronger as a school.
“CPS has its origins in the GA educational model and curriculum. To have graduates of that growing program enrolled and achieving at our alma mater is truly the fulfillment of a dream! The opportunity we will provide is the gift of a world class education. There is perhaps nothing more valuable we could do together as alumni from GA.”
— Samantha MacGregor Jordan’88
“Whether we were conscious of it or not, there were those who provided opportunity for us and our classmates while we were in school together. This exciting plan grants each of us the opportunity to pay that forward and very meaningfully show our appreciation for those who made our GA education possible.”
