The Gray Charter School Needs Your Help
Our teachers and students need your help to raise the necessary capital of $250,000. Help us prevent a school closure.
We are fortunate to have a supportive community of families and businesses who willingly contribute to our annual fundraising efforts. As we discuss every year, parent participation in fundraising is critical.
As a charter school, The Gray Charter School receives public funds for the administrative costs of school operations such as teacher salaries, learning materials for students, utilities and lease payments. However, we do not receive public funds for capital expenses, which is a significant part of our annual budget.
Without your support The Gray Charter School may have to close its doors. Rendering teachers and staff unemployed and students without a school.
We ask that you ponder this challenge as a family and set goals for supporting this important journey for our students and keep the doors of The Gray Charter School open.
