Donate to the Annual Fund

The​ Graham Expeditionary Middle School (GEMS) has been ​serving​ students ​since 2010​, and we couldn't do it without the support of families, friends, alumni and the community. We need your ​gift to the Annual Fund​ now, more than ever, to ​maintain​ and improve our rich educational environment. As a registered 501(c)(3), all donations to GEMS are tax-deductible ​under​ Internal Revenue Service​ guidelines.

Donate to the Annual Fund!

Gifts to the Annual Fund provide unrestricted, critical resources that support the essentials of a quality academic and experiential program.  This fund helps bridge the gap between state funding and the actual cost to educate each child. Your gift to the Annual Fund will have an immediate impact on current students.  Just a few examples of the things made possible through gifts to the Annual Fund include new textbooks, buses for expeditions and field work, and updated technology.  In addition, the Annual Fund allows us the freedom to direct funds to where they are needed most in each school, and flexibility throughout the year for unexpected costs/expenses.

 It is now common practice for a portion of our school's annual operating budget to be supported by philanthropic donations.  Every member of our community is asked to participate: current parents, grandparents, alumni, parents of alumni, board members, community members and other friends provide support each year. Giving enables you to help our school positively impact the lives of youth in our community.

Can't make a financial gift at this time? Consider donating items on our Wish List or volunteering your time helping around the school.
