Heron Annual Fund


Every dollar donated to the Heron Annual Fund between May 1 and June 30th will go directly to support the school’s Financial Aid program. 

As the tremendous impact of the pandemic comes into stark focus, we have an opportunity to help students who otherwise would not be able to continue their education here at Gunston, due to circumstances completely beyond their control. They are in need of the generosity of the Gunston community, now more than ever. I am reaching out to you, to ask you to make a direct impact and provide financial aid resources for families in need. Families who have had to shutter their business and watch as their only source of income dried up overnight, those who have been furloughed or laid off, their savings depleted, now struggling to pay essential bills. These families are part of the Gunston community, and they need your support. 

We recognize that there are many, many other worthy causes and organizations in need of support, especially right now. But we hope you’ll consider making a donation to the Heron Annual Fund, in accordance with your capacity, and help us reach our goal of providing more financial aid directly to those who need it most, ensuring much-needed stability and consistency for the young people who call Gunston home. Thank you. 

Donating to the Heron Fund in someone's honor is a great way to show your appreciation. Perhaps you are donating in honor of your favorite teacher, or someone at Gunston who has made a difference in your life, or an individual who has gone above and beyond during this time of crisis. Maybe the donation is to honor YOUR student and their resilience. Whatever the reason, and whoever the person, let us know in the form and we will reach out and let this person know how much they mean to you. Please indicate whether or not we can share this story on social media and our website.
