1970 Society

The 1970 Society builds on the foundation established by our founders and early stakeholders. We honor both their tenure and yours by keeping the spirit of GDS alive and well. Unrestricted support is a powerful expression of belief and confidence in GDS and remains a critical part of our current and future success.

As the premier leadership donors of the school, The 1970 Society holds special events with the Head of School, allows you to connect with leaders in our community, and celebrates our successes together.
