Your Giving Tuesday gift goes to support our Firebird Fund! Named after the school mascot– the Firebird– The Girls’ School Annual Fund is called The Firebird Fund. Many of the enhancements and unique programs, such as music, fine arts, and robust service-learning opportunities provided at our school are a result of each year’s Firebird Fund. Charitable giving allows us to offer an exceptional education for every girl at the GSA!
Why is the Firebird Fund necessary?
Your gift to the The Girls’ School Firebird Fund, combined with the gifts of other parents, grandparents and friends of the school, has the cumulative power to strengthen and elevate the The Girls’ School community. Together we make The Girls’ School a place for young girls to thrive, express themselves, and feel at home while also becoming enthusiastic, confident and resourceful learners, citizens and friends. Additionally, your participation helps make a powerful statement to the larger community including outside donors and charitable foundations that look for strong support within the schools they wish to support.
Does it matter when I make my pledge or gift?
Giving Tuesday gifts are elligible for a match from November 29th-December 13th. Gifts given during this time will be elligble for the Firebird plushie and the Superhero Art Book.
How much should we give?
We hope you will participate at a level that is personally meaningful to you. Your gift directly enhances your child’s education. Gifts over $250 will receive a Firebird plushie as a thank you, while gifts over $500 will receive a limited edition Superhero Art Book! Your donation is an expression of support and pride in The Girls’ School of Austin. All gifts matter and every gift makes a difference!
Do you accept matching gifts?
Why not charge the full cost of educating a student?
I support the spring gala fundraiser. Why should I support the Firebird Fund, too?
Do you accept contributions of something other than cash?
