On Track for a Record Year

Dear GSP Supporters,

In September, we challenged the community to raise $20,000 this fiscal year. I am happy to report that we've received $12,975 in donations since that challenge was announced, surpassing last year's total amount raised of $11,000 and putting us on track to reach our goal of $20,000. Sincere thanks to those kind and generous individuals who helped us get here. Now is the time to sustain this momentum and push ahead to reach our goal of $20,000.


The financial aid support program is a crucial one for GSP, giving families that may not otherwise be able to send their children to GSP the opportunity to overcome financial challenges. The financial aid committee will be meeting again soon to review family requests and we hope to be able to meet everyone’s needs.

Thank you again for your support and please spread the word!

Sincerely,

Bettina Calaba

Very Generous First Quarter

Dear GSP Supporters,

In September I challenged the community to raise $20,000 this fiscal year.  At the end of the first quarter I am thrilled to announce that we've already received $7450 in donations and that was all in the first quarter.  Sincere thanks to those kind and generous individuals.

Now is the time to sustain this momentum and push ahead to reach our goal of $20,000.  We raised $11,000 last year.  Let's try to even double that this year.

Thanks much and please spread the word!

2011-12-Help us Start Strong

Dear all generous supporters,

Many, many thanks for donating over $11,000 using globalgiving in our first full year of participation.  Your donations go directly to helping support our financial aid program and one child was able to attend GSP as a result!

Tomorrow is our first day of school for the 2011-2012 school year.  I know there are many families in the area who would love to send their children to our school, but don't have the means.  Please consider another donation if you've already given and if you're new to our community, please help us help others.

I challenge our community to raise $20,000 during 2011-12.

Vielen, vielen Dank,

Blake Peters
