Support GCS

Help support our school

Throughout our 60-year history, Glenelg Country School has been supported by a legacy of philanthropy. In the classroom, on the stage, or on the playing fields the kind donations from parents, alumni, and the greater community have allowed us to maintain the vibrant and exceptional learning journey our school provides for all students.

Whether you share your TIME for volunteer opportunities supporting our teachers, your TALENT as a resource for our students, or your TREASURE in the form of a philanthropic gift, you are helping us sustain the unique vision of our college preparatory school.

In past years, gifts have included an alumni wall honoring past and future GCS alumni, stone stadium entrance columns, and a custom stone grill. The 2017 class legacy gift will be a bronze dragon statue which will be mounted on one of the Dragon Stadium columns.
