One GDS Campaign Celebration

Saturday night marked a significant moment in GDS’s history. Nearly 800 people from all constituencies gathered to celebrate the announcement of the One Campus. One Mission. One GDS. Campaign. This campaign supports unifying our School, expanding financial aid, and enhancing programs through the Annual Fund. The audience roared with applause as Russell announced that $50,000,000 has already been raised! He thanked those who have given, invited those who have yet to join us, and challenged our community to raise an additional $1,000,000+, which will support 10 students through High School with an average financial aid award of $25,000.
