|Endowment & Capital Gifts |
Greenwich Academy depends on major gifts to help build its endowment and to support specific capital projects and needs of the school. The Academy is grateful for the tremendous generosity of all members of its community who, in addition to supporting the school through Annual Giving, have made significant contributions to the longterm strength of the institution through endowment and capital gifts.
In order for the Academy to stay true to its mission, to keep pace with the newest advances in education, to remain competitive among comparable schools and to provide security for its future, it is imperative that the growth of the School's endowment continue to be a priority.
As of June 30, 2012 Greenwich Academy has an endowment of $68.2 million and a net endowment of $30 million.
Addressing priorities identified in the school’s 2010 strategic plan, the Academy has launched The Campaign for the Future to secure the strength of its endowment while advancing programming that promotes community, character and achievement and broadens global perspectives.

|GA offers challenges that keep me focused and dedicated to my work. The friendly but also competitive atmosphere motivates me to strive to do my best. The teachers are very helpful and never hesitate to give advice, in or out of the classroom. Attending GA has offered me many opportunities to achieve my goals. I know GA will continue to guide me and with its help, I always will succeed. |
