With this the last week of school and many of us thinking back to our GB days, we launch our new Alumni-initiated memorial endowment fund series. If you’re like many of us and feel it’s time to “give back”, this is another way that we GB Alumni can do exactly that.
We’re starting with four endowment funds named after some of our most cherished teachers, with more to come. The first four endowments are (in alphabetical order):
* The Bert Brady Memorial GB Alumni Endowment (Science & Technology)
* The Therese Coyle Memorial GB Alumni Endowment (Language & Multiculturalism)
* The Mike Gaston Memorial GB Alumni Endowment (Student & Community Engagement/School Spirit)
* The Richard Seaborn Memorial GB Alumni Endowment (Music & Fine Arts)
All GB alumni are invited to donate any amount any time to the endowment(s) of their choosing, with tax receipts issued by the school division. Funds are for GB to use as it wishes, with minimal guidance from us, for student and staff projects and activities where the school budget’s insufficient or unavailable. Each endowment has a general theme, closely matched with the teacher we’re remembering.
Do your part and support one or more of the endowments. For more information, visit our info page. And spread the word to other GB Alumni!
