With your donation, you will help EFGS provide the unique French programs you desire for your children’s education.
Kick-off: December 1st - Donate or pledge now!
This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 by December 31st!
EFGS has become a solid educational option for francophone families. Since we started in 2009 with just 30 students, 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 of about 170 students with a very limited budget, and with a high-level of engagement from board members and volunteers.
Last year, we had our very first Annual Fund. Thanks to the $13,000 raised, we were able to:
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?
As more classes are added, the load carried on by Board Members working pro-bono expands considerably. Thus, our need to officialize key positions, and strengthen our organization in these ways:
WHAT AMOUNT SHOULD I GIVE TO THE ANNUAL FUND?
An average gift of $60 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.
