Graland is continually evaluating how we can offer students the best program and educational facilities that inspire curiosity and learning. Strong financial support to the annual fund is a necessity for a strong program. To inspire higher participation, we will better educate our community about Graland’s financial model and the importance of giving. Building on the current momentum, we will continue to increase the endowment, thus offsetting our dependence on tuition increases, and uphold our commitment to financial aid, faculty development and retention.
Beyond financial support, other types of resources — volunteerism, professional and personal expertise, and gifts in kind — are important for the school’s success. We value these non-financial contributions, and will seek out additional ways to engage our current and broader community, tapping into the potential of all our resources.
We are committed to investing in our campus and facilities for programmatic support and we will further optimize our outdoor spaces. We will continue to evaluate our campus, technology systems and skill sets, making certain we implement facility improvements and offer the proper training to ensure the safety of our community.
