This year marks Good Shepherd Episcopal School’s 60th anniversary, and we anticipate a year of celebrations as we position our campus for continued success for the next 60 years and beyond. Unlike most of our peers, Good Shepherd does not operate on a yearly gap budget, which means tuition dollars cover 100% of the costs associated with educating our students. The school’s fiscal astuteness allows Annual Campaign funds to go above and beyond tuition for initiatives to make our school even better.
Historically, 10% of all money raised has been designated for endowments. Most recently, those funds provided additional church seating and expanded parking lot construction along Midway and Northaven. The additional church seating provides a true all-school chapel experience, increased graduation capacity, and allows for other large, all-school gatherings.
The Annual Campaign also supports the Legacy Gift as chosen by the Class of 2020. The focus of the Legacy Gift for 2019-2020 will be the installation of new, state of the art outdoor marquees which will impact our community now and in the future.
