With your donation, you will help EFGS provide the unique French programs you desire for your children’s education.
EFGS has become a solid educational option for francophone families. Since we started in 2009, we have strongly adhered to our mission. Our tuition cost remains low, we have consolidated our curriculum, and established strong relationships and partnerships within our community. We have also been able to continue to grow to our current size with a very limited budget, and with a high-level of engagement from board members and volunteers.
Today, we need your help to support us in making the necessary investments to sustain our growth and envision the future.
Our goal is to have 100% participation from all of our supporters. Please know that no donation is too small. We thank you for your commitment to EFGS!
What will the funds be used for?
The funds raised this year will help us reach a balanced budget while necessary investments are made. Among many items, these investments include retaining teachers with a new salary system, developing new academic programs and improving our organization with the hiring of a new Program Director. Donations will help us maintaining growth without compromising our mission: to provide an affordable, effective and high quality educational option for French speaking children. Donations to the Annual Fund are "unrestricted" and go towards the current fiscal year budget and will be used during the school year in which the donations are made.
WHAT AMOUNT SHOULD I GIVE TO THE ANNUAL FUND?
An average gift of $100 per student would help us reach our goal. However, we recognize and understand that this may be beyond the abilities of some families, and some families may be able to give much more. Above all, please know that EVERY gift to the Annual Fund is needed and greatly appreciated. We are truly grateful for your contribution.
Why do you need all families to give?
By making a gift, you are not only investing in EFGS' present and future; you are also showing our corporate partners a vote of confidence, and helping to ensure that EFGS receives support from them.
What if I don't want to make a gift until the new year?
That’s easy. Pledge by December 31, but pay later. You’ll have until June 30 to fulfill your pledge.
