$150,000 Commitment Campaign

Glacier Lake School truly changes lives. Please watch the videos to the right to see how we have helped students and families find the confidence and enjoyment to pursue their own dreams.

To sustain the school and allow it to thrive as an option for families, a tuition-only model is not feasible. We charge a low enrollment fee ($5,400) compared to many private schools so that we can continue to offer our school to the wider community. We are a non-profit 501c(3) organization.

Over 50% of our families struggle to afford our enrollment fee and we would like to offer more places at our schools to all families.

We realize that a different model to tuition-only is needed; one where a community of citizens - who recognize the value of this approach to learning - can provide the resources needed to help GLS stay here and to prosper.

We need a financial commitment of $150,000 per year in order to reach the following goals:

Goal 1: To increase enrollment to 40 students for 2020-21

Goal 2: Increase full-time staff members to 4

Goal 3: Extend existing building in line with increased enrollment

Goal 4: Aquire 2 vans to use for field trips.

We have already secured one promise of a yearly contribution of $10,000, along with a number of smaller donations. We are now looking for other people or organizations to match these pledges to get us to our overall goal of $150,ooo per year.

PLEASE leave us a message in the form below to let us know how you may be able to help.
