Giving to GSL
A Message from the Director of Development
Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal School is proud of its reputation as one of the finest schools in Memphis. Our graduates are thoroughly prepared for high school and have the solid foundation - the anchor - they need to succeed in college and adult life. This is true of their social, physical and spiritual development as well as their academic experiences.
To ensure that GSL continues to provide a superior education for all its students, the Board of Trustees oversees an annual giving campaign to raise money for financial needs not met by tuition income. Contributions enable the school to upgrade technology, provide advanced training for teachers, improve campus facilities, and offer financial aid.
All contributions are tax deductible, and many companies offer matching gift programs. Additionally, families may use their annual giving contribution to recognize a special person or event in the form of a memorial or honorarium. Donors to the campaign are recognized every year in the school’s published annual report. Lead donors ($500 or more annually) are invited to a special recognition party at the start of the school year.
The majority (between 70-80%) of GSL’s current families contribute to the annual fund. Additionally, 100% of the Board of Trustees, 100% of the faculty and staff, plus grandparents, alumni, and other supporters throughout the community give whatever they comfortably can. I hope you will join their ranks, supporting one of the best schools in Memphis with a tax-deductible donation.
To set up a recurring donation please email Kate Shelton(kshelton [at] gslschool [dot] org).
We appreciate your support!
