Giving Day, scheduled for Tuesday, June 4, is an opportunity for George Stevens Academy alumni, parents, grandparents, friends, and other supporters who have not yet given this year to come together on one day to make a gift to The GSA Fund as the end of our fiscal year approaches.
Following the workshops and performances of Arts Fest, the first full week of June signals the tail end of the school year. Graduation is on the horizon, and young alumni have returned home from college. Students are focused on getting through the final stretch, yet it also is a time of excitement, anticipation, and celebration.
We hope to capture that energy by inviting you to celebrate with us and to support The GSA Fund, which helps cover the substantial gap between the state-set tuition received from sending towns and the cost of providing a comprehensive GSA education.
Bucklyn coffee and baked goods will be available starting at 7:30AM for anyone who would like to stop in to say "hi" and make a donation in person. If you gave to The GSA Fund since last July, we welcome you to join us for snacks and to help spread the word about Giving Day. Broad participation in The GSA Fund is vital to the health of our school, and we hope to see a great show of support from all who care about George Stevens Academy and our students.
For 2019, as a special incentive, a loyal GSA supporter has committed $10,000 if we met our goal of 300 donations on Giving Day. Giving Day is a perfect example of how contributions of any size help GSA both directly and by securing larger donations from leadership donors.
Throughout the day, we will take photos and post updates on GSA's Facebook page. If you are unable to stop by or are supporting GSA from afar, you may contribute by phone (207-374-2800), by mail (23 Union St, Blue Hill, ME 04614) or online.
