October 6, 2011
The year is off to a great start and I’m pleased to announce the kick-off of Gillispie’s 2011-2012 Annual Giving Campaign–donor materials were mailed home this week. We are excited to have Gillispie parents Jill Skrezyna and Alex Sun as our campaign chairs this year.
As is the case at most independent schools, the income generated by tuition at Gillispie does not cover the cost of educating a child. The Annual Giving Campaign bridges the shortfall between tuition income and expenses. Your donation to the school’s most important campaign is 100% tax-deductible.
The Gillispie School Board of Trustees, families, faculty, and staff have participated at the 100% level for eight consecutive years. We are proud of this extraordinary effort. Alumni and grandparents participate as well. The goal for this year’s campaign is $310,000. The Campaign has a formal start date of October, and although gifts and pledges are accepted through June 30, 2012, we usually try to wrap up 100% participation by end of January.
Thank you for your purposeful generosity.
Director of Development
