The Gould Fund

We need your help with The Gould Fund, Giving Tuesday 2021!

Rituals give shape to our daily lives, and missing some of them over the past couple of years has underscored how important they are; how much they matter.  

The Gould Fund is one such familiar and important ritual. The Gould Fund is how we are able to offer an exceptional experience for our students, year after year. It is more than a ritual ask, it is how our community flexes our philanthropic muscle and provides the “special sauce” that makes a year at Gould Academy come alive by supporting the annual budget and operational expenses.

Only with a robust and vibrant Gould Fund, are these programs and others possible.

The Gould community has come together to share our favorite traditions & rituals. 

The gift you make will go directly to The Gould Fund.  Gould Academy’s campaign begins Tuesday, November 16, and culminates on Giving Tuesday on Tuesday, November 30th.  

Please spread the message and share it with your friends, past classmates, family, and more!

Our goal is to raise $100,000 with 400 donors by November 30th, 2021

We did it last year. Thank you, Huskies.

This was spectacular!

What a year!  Gould’s donor participation and average gift amount increased greatly. Following a record-breaking Giving Tuesday in December 2020, we hit our annual budgeted goal of $450,000, then surpassed a revised goal of $650,000 to reach a total of $719,192 for FY21.

We believe deeply that the learning that happens here at Gould, in this amazing place, is something special—something found nowhere else. Thank you for your continued support of Gould, our community, and our mission.
