The Governor's Fund

July 1 – June 30

More than 1,800 alumni, parents and friends made gifts to The Governor's Academy last year. Many donors support the school as a means of giving back to a place that has given them so much. Others wish to honor a beloved faculty member, celebrate a milestone, or invest in the Academy's promising future.

Whatever the reason, every gift makes a difference. Gifts to The Governor’s Fund reach all corners of our campus and support nearly every aspect of daily life in this community. Your philanthropy benefits faculty, financial aid, academic programs, the arts, athletics, community service, student leadership, and a historic campus. Increasingly, these gifts provide the critical funds necessary to attract bright, talented, and ambitious boys and girls who will thrive here and become the citizen leaders of their generations. They, like those who came before them, are worthy of our investment.

Your annual gift helps underwrite 10 percent of the Academy’s annual operating budget. It allows us to create and develop distinctive programs, like the Catalyst Summer Science Internships and GovsPLUS. Gifts of every size are important and go to work immediately in the current school year.
