Gray Stone 2018 Annual Giving Campaign

CLICK BELOW TO DONATE






The “Giving Campaign” is exactly as it sounds – donations/gifts that are requested on an annual basis to help support annual operating expenses.  Entrance into Gray Stone is tuition-free and based solely on the lottery system (vs. school zone). Since we do not receive the same state and federal funding as traditional public schools, we must rely on individual and corporate donations to support ongoing needs.  

WHY IS MY PARTICIPATION IMPORTANT?

When applying for grants to help fund programs, we must report the percentage of families donating to the school.  Showing a high percentage of participation is a critical factor in obtaining grant approval.  We also ask for 100% participation from our Gray Stone Board of Directors (many of which do not have children at the school).  Each and every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. 

HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE?

Given the importance of the Giving Campaign and the dollars raised, we ask that you give as generously as you can, but at a level that is comfortable for your family.  We are extremely grateful to everyone that contributes, as each gift is crucial to the success of the Annual Giving Campaign.  

IS MY GIFT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE? YES!

All donations to Gray Stone are tax-deductible provided you do not receive any goods or services in return.  You will receive a letter including the amount of your donation to use for tax purposes.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY GIFT?

It’s easy!  Simply make your check out to Gray Stone Day School and return it in the mail or drop it off in either front office.  You may also donate cash to either the front office or even pay online by clicking the donate button at the top of this page. 

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO MAKE MY DONATION?

We are focusing our campaign efforts through the end of October and hope to achieve 100% participation by that time; however, your donations are welcome at any time that is most suitable for your family.

CAN OTHER MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY CONTRIBUTE?

Absolutely!  We would welcome and sincerely appreciate the support of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, Gray Stone alumni and friends!  Sending a link to our website and directing them to online donations is a great way to share that information with other family members and friends.  

Posting the link to your social media accounts is welcomed too.  You will receive confirmation once your donation has been received and a final update of the total raised. 

Make sure to check to see if your company will match your donation!

WE PROMISE YOUR KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY WILL HELP US ACHIEVE GREAT GOALS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF GRAY STONE DAY SCHOOL!
