Donor Challenge: Double your gift for the Inspire Campaign

One donor has offered a $100,000 pledge to motivate Graland families to give to the Inspire Campaign. All gifts up to $5,000 will be matched dollar for dollar. This generous donor hopes to see further support and broader participation in the campaign. Your gift today will go farther as a result of this matching challenge!

Gifts to the Inspire Campaign have already gone to work.

Beginning with the 2019-20 teacher contracts, every lead and specials teacher received a significant salary increase as we transitioned to a new compensation structure designed to motivate their collaboration, innovation and campus leadership. The Inspire endowment will ensure we can continue to fund an extraordinary teaching staff that brings a higher level of excellence to our program.
