Ways to Give and Support GHA

Gig Harbor private school logo

It is an honor to be given the responsibility to educate your children and witness their flourishing in the unique environment that our school offers. To continue to grow and thrive we need to invest in our school. As is typical in private independent schools, tuition payments alone do not cover the operating costs of running the school. We raise around 10% of our operating costs through our two main fundraising efforts, the Annual Fund and the Annual Auction. This is essential to fully funding the educational experience you expect from Gig Harbor Academy.

How to Support the Future of GHA

We launch our Annual Fund campaign every Fall and host our Annual Auction every Spring. These fundraising efforts directly benefit our teachers and students. We rely on fundraising to bridge the gap between tuition and our actual costs. Your tax-deductible gift helps offset those expenses by directly benefiting your students’ educational offerings. Why give? Your generosity ensures continued:

  1. Small class sizes allowing for individual attention and stronger student/teacher connections.
  2. Exceptional and enriching academic programs, including specialist classes in Art, Music, Spanish, PE, Science, and Technology.
  3. Cooperative partnership among parent, teacher and student.
  4. Exploration and stewardship of the natural world through our 10-acre campus.
  5. Talented teachers committed to excellence in their craft.
  6. Emphasis on social-emotional development.
  7. Supportive classroom environments offering differentiated learning.

Gifts of any level are greatly appreciated as we work toward to meet our annual goals, which include 100% participation among families, faculty, and staff. You can give by making a donation online, or if you prefer you can mail a check. Contact our business office to make a donation with corporate matching funds, securities, or recurring pledged gifts. Thank you, in advance, for making an investment in our children. Your donation makes a difference!
