The Friends GCCS Endowment in Perpetuity . . .
began with $7,500 in November 2015 when Dr. Alice White established and funded the Endowment with The Community Foundation in Kerrville, Texas, to provide management of the Endowment.
WHY: The Endowment in Perpetuity means support forever to achieve Friends' mission: "Preserving the past to enrich the future". Two factors contribute to long-term success: financial stability and members. An Endowment promotes financial stability and membership growth.
HOW: Even though the Endowment is supported by the Friends, our need to prioritize spending with limited funds means we function much like our fathers: we pay ourselves first by putting something into the Endowment each year, but the amount varies according to funds.
WE INVITE YOU TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE FRIENDS ENDOWMENT.
Join us to continue the job we began in 1999-SAVE THE SCHOOLS!
All endowment contributions are publically acknowledged. You'll receive complimentary Membership-at-Large with our quarterly CHALKBOARD eNewsletter. Friends is a non-profit, 501(3)c since 1999.
