GPS Launches the Bridge Fund, an Emergency Assistance Fund
GPS launches emergency assistance fund in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently our world changed seemingly overnight due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We realize that GPS families are facing many challenges, including job loss or income reduction for some. In these uncertain times, we want to support our community and assist those who are struggling financially. We need your help to do so.
In response, we have established the GPS Bridge Fund and are seeking donations from our community. The Bridge Fund offers the following financial assistance for families who have suffered income loss:
An emergency tuition assistance fund established to provide temporary aid for GPS students for the 山东体彩11选5开奖-21 山东体彩11选5开奖 year.
A faculty/staff benevolence fund for GPS employees who are experiencing financial hardship.
As gifts to the GPS Bridge Fund allow, we will help ensure that ALL GPS girls are able to continue their education alongside their classmates next 山东体彩11选5开奖 year and that our dedicated faculty and staff weather the financial pressures from household job loss or income reduction.
The GPS community spans generations and geographies. We are united in our belief in the power of educating girls to lead lives of integrity and purpose. We now share this common experience of uncertainty and concern. But greater than that are the values that connect us and a belief that we are strengthened by caring for one another and our hope for a better future, one that GPS girls will help create.
Please consider . If you have already made a gift to the annual Impact Fund, we appreciate your generosity and hope that you will consider supporting this additional effort in response to these extraordinary times.
Here's to the Girls!
Dr. Autumn A. Graves, Head of School, and Ali Gant, Chief Development Officer

FACULTY/STAFF BENEVOLENCE FUND “I’ve heard students and alumnae say that going into any classroom at GPS felt like going into that teacher's 山东体彩11选5开奖. During the pandemic, teachers’ 山东体彩11选5开奖s ARE their classrooms with their families and students learning side by side. In faculty families, where resources have shrunk and needs ballooned, we who esteem them and honor their calling can help bridge this gap by giving to the Bridge Fund.” —Jane Henegar, former GPS Bible teacher, Faculty Emerita
