Ways to Give
Grand River Academy takes great pride in serving as a trusted steward of the donations made to the school to support its mission, its students, its faculty, and its future. Several Giving Opportunities exist at GRA.
Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of the Academy’s annual operating expenses. Donations support the many features that make our campus a home including student life programming, financial/scholarship assistance, athletics, faculty professional development, facility maintenance, and, often an area of greatest need during a given school year.
The Blue & White Fund, GRA’s annual giving program, provides critical support for every aspect of the student experience at GRA. Give now and make a difference in the lives of our students and teachers.
Recent capital projects at Grand River Academy include the Bud Field Student Center and the Robert S. Morrison Lecture Center. Naming opportunities within each structure are still available.
Gifts made to the GRA Endowment Fund ensure the financial stability of Grand River Academy.
In 2013, GRA introduced the Leaving a Legacy program, where families of 2013 graduates were asked to collectively donate $13,000 in the name of the Class of 2013 and thus offer the GRA experience to other young men who feel the need to reinvent themselves. This initiative will continues during the 2014-2015 school year.
Additionally, there are also named scholarship opportunities available through The GRA Endowment Fund.
In-kind donations are always welcome at Grand River Academy. Recent in-kind donations include appliances for faculty housing, orchestra tickets for students, books for the Gates Library, athletic equipment and tools for the school garden.
Each school year, Grand River Academy addresses specific projects that will impact the current student body, and often build the infrastructure for the students who come after them at GRA. Gifts can be restricted to support a donor's chosen special project.
Grand River Academy welcomes alumni, community members and interested individuals to volunteer with GRA. Opportunities include the GRA Alumni Association, GRA Parent Association and the GRA Board of Trustees, as well as one-time or reoccurring opportunities such as guest speakers and extracurricular activity volunteers. GRA is always seeking Alumni Ambassadors, Admissions Ambassadors and Advancement Ambassadors.
