Support GMS

The GMS Vision

At GMS we foster a learning environment where girls code robots, perform Shakespeare, publish poetry, and learn to surf. We nurture a learning community where faculty and students form meaningful life-long relationships thanks to small class sizes, three-year advisories, and experiential learning opportunities. GMS provides the intellectual, social, and emotional support that prepares girls to be the engaged,
game-changing citizens that the world needs.

Why does GMS need my support?
While you might expect that tuition covers the full GMS experience, it does not. The difference between tuition and the full cost of a GMS education is approximately $4,000. The GMS Board deliberately sets tuition below full cost in order to assemble an economically-diverse student body and to provide the GMS community with opportunities to support the school with tax-deductible, philanthropic gifts. 

Additional financial support is crucial. The GMS Fund provides our students with the innovative and compelling experiences that are the hallmark of a GMS education. The Bennett Scholars Program provides comprehensive scholarships with wraparound support.

Thank you for taking the time to consider how you can support GMS. 
The Girls’ Middle School is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, tax ID number 94-3253594. Gifts made to the school are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by IRS regulations for charitable donations.
