The 1970 Society was established in the year 2020 to celebrate our 50th birthday and recognizes parents, alumni, faculty, former faculty, staff, and friends who make an unrestricted gift of $1,970 to Greensboro Day School from July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021.

In addition to showing a sign of celebration for our founding, 2020 required incredible energy and focus to open our school safely in COVID-19.  The funds generated from your 1970 Society membership directly help our school address the extra costs associated with safety measures implemented to ensure maximum safety for our students and teachers. Here are some of the safety precautions that your 1970 Society membership funds: 

  • A new Global Plasma Solutions air filtration system in every building
  • Swivl Technology provides a remote learning option
  • A renovated Health Center with a sick and well area
  • Eight tents for outdoor lunch, learning, and play
  • Outdoor tables 
  • New wayfinding systems and signage
  • A new key card system for building entry
  • An additional full-time nurse

To join the 1970 Society, you may submit your gift electronically, remit payment via check to the Office of Advancement, 5401 Lawndale Drive, Greensboro, NC 2755 or call the Office of Advancement with your credit card information at (336) 288-8590 ext. 254.
