The Annual Fund begins July 1 and ends on June 30.


The GISC Annual Fund provides an important source of funds and is designed to permit families to direct their tax-free donations to GISC. All members of the GISC community – Board of Trustees, parents, supporters – are asked for a gift to the Annual Fund. We encourage each individual to make a gift that is comfortable for their financial situation, and 100% participation is as important as the fundraising goal. For families whose employers will “match” gifts, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of that option as well.
