We are excited to introduce Brook and Paul Wingate as our 2020-21 Annual Fund First Chairs. They are the parents of Kate Wingate '23. The Wingate Family has been deeply involved in the life of Greensboro Day School for the last 10 years, and we are thankful to have them lead the Annual Fund during the 20-21 year.
Brook and Paul are both development professionals and we are excited to have their knowledge as they lead a dedicated group of parent volunteers to help us reach our goal of $500,000 and 100% parent participation. This year, one of our focuses is to ensure everyone understands the Annual Fund and the important role it plays in supporting the operating budget each school year.
The Annual Fund:
- Helps bridge the $1,600 gap between tuition and the actual cost of attending Greensboro Day School. This allows you to make a tax-deductible donation to support the school.
- Helps the school afford many of the investments it made to make in-person learning a reality for our students. Without these investments, it is likely that our students would not be in person or be able to remote in from home.
We look forward to Brook and Paul's leadership this year as the annual fund is as important as it has ever been due to the additional costs associated with reopening the school for in-person learning.
