Annual Fund

GPS 2023 Annual Fund (1)_edited.png

Let's Create a Bright Future​

Over the past 45 years, Granada Preparatory School has offered its students a rich academic foundation based not only on reading, writing, math, social studies and science, but also on the core values of leadership, personal responsibility, and good citizenship.  The IB learner profile attributes are incorporated into all aspects of the educational program where we encourage students to think deeper, see things from different perspectives, become caring and responsible citizens and take action. GPS students learn how to learn and express their ideas and opinions in a variety of ways. Our inclusive environment and caring faculty help our students to develop the real life skills necessary to succeed.


This complete IB educational experience is not sustained by tuition alone.  The school depends on a culture of giving from our generous community in “Creating a Bright Future” for our students.  Monetary gifts through our Annual Fund are essential to maintaining and enhancing the GPS IB experience.  Your tax-deductible gifts are solicited to cover the difference between tuition revenue and the school’s actual operating costs.

Last year’s annual fund contributions allowed us to do the following:

  • Replace 20 aging iPads.

  • Add an additional STEAM field trip.

  • Provide CPR/First Aid training for all faculty and staff.

  • Provide all faculty and staff professional development on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  • Send 7 faculty members to the IB conference for additional training.

  • Purchase 2 new GPS pop up tents to use at events.


The goals of this year’s Annual Fund are:

  • Teacher professional development.

  • Replace an additional 20 iPads.

  • Enhance playground areas for Preschool, Lower School and Middle School.

  • Purchase new musical equipment.


This year’s goal is 100% participation from families, faculty, trustees, and staff. Partner with the faculty and staff as they work to Create a Bright Future for your student this year by donating to the Annual Fund.  To commemorate your donation of $100 or more, your child will create a tile to be displayed on the wall of the school. A donation of $500 or more will allow your child to create 4 tiles. Each day as your child arrives, they will see their artwork and know that their family has helped in Creating a Bright Future for them.


Donating is easy:

  • Go to

  • Use the enclosed form and drop off or mail your donation to the school.

  • Check to see if your company offers a matching gift program which can be used to double or sometimes triple your gift.   


Your generous participation in whatever measure you are capable of will benefit your student and the high quality IB education that GPS offers.  Please join me in Creating a Bright Future for your student and those students to come.
