Give Back to Graland

We are grateful for the many ways alumni continue to contribute to the Graland community.

An official Alumni Speaker Series began in 2013 to bring a diverse group of professionals to campus to share stories about their careers, professional passions and life experiences with students. Other alumni are invited to present an "UpWords" speech on how Graland Guiding Principles have impacted their lives. 

For those who are inspired to support Graland financially, the Graland Annual Fund is a critical need that is applied to the current school year's operating budget. There are also endowments in honor of past teachers such as Robert Romero, as well as opportunities to give in memory of a loved one or special teacher. There are many ways to show your appreciation for your Graland education with a gift.
