Community Demonstrates its Belief in Graland’s Teachers
Launched last year, the Inspire Campaign is a $12 million endowment campaign dedicated to funding an innovative faculty compensation structure that rewards teachers for their contributions in the classroom, as well as their impact in advancing Graland’s program. As we continue toward our funding goal, here is a bit more about the significance of this endowment.
To date, we have experienced resounding success, having raised over $9.3 million toward our $12 million campaign goal. Graland faculty members have been overwhelmed by the community’s support, feeling grateful, truly valued, and even more “inspired” to continue to grow themselves in their profession.
Did You Know? More than 200 individuals and families have already contributed to the Inspire Campaign - thank you!
Thanks to early support, the new compensation system for faculty has been implemented in the 2019-20 school year. Josh Cobb and senior administrators were thrilled to have greater flexibility in recognizing teachers’ impact on student learning and advancing the school’s program.
Essential Funds for the Future
While parts of the new compensation model are being funded by tuition and operational efficiencies, the $12 million Inspire endowment is essential to maintain the long-term viability of the structure. Inspire ensures that Graland has the funds to commit to the continual growth of our faculty, separate from other operational considerations or necessities.
