Green Hedges Fund

2016-17 Goal: $155,000

The Green Hedges Fund is a pool of money that the GHS extended family contributes each year to fund activities and materials. These gifts provide the difference between what is ordinary and what is distinctive about the GHS experience.


‘Done In 61’

‘Done in 61’ is our campaign for current family support of the Green Hedges Fund. This campaign is launched each year in early October. For 2016-17, we seek to raise $130,000 from current families. Follow our progress here!


Done In 61

Beyond ‘Done in 61’, the Green Hedges Fund is also generously supported by our extended community of alumni, alumni parents, faculty and staff, grandparents and friends. Secure donations to this fund can be made at the link below.

  • E-textbooks for more ages and courses, materials supporting flipped classroom learning and other items to expose our students to the latest innovative educational methodologies.

Green Hedges Fund gifts are tax-deductible and allocated within the fiscal year they are received.

Matching Gift Programs

Many organizations offer matching gift programs that support K-12 schools. Please check with your employer to see if they will match your gift. This is a great way to leverage the impact of your support by doubling or even tripling your contribution! If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed to the Development Office. We will do the rest. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses too. Green Hedges School is also an accepted “write-in” agency for the United Way of the National Capital Area.

Green Hedges Leadership Donors

Green Hedges’ recognizes those who give $1,000 or more to the Green Hedges Fund as leadership donors.

After twelve years at GHS, we continue to be excited about the school because the academic program is so strong and we believe it is second to none in the Washington metro region. GHS teachers have inspired our kids to learn, compete and push themselves to set and achieve great academic and athletic goals... We’ve seen up close and personal the empowering and exceptionally positive impact GHS teachers and school leadership have had on our kids and countless other students we’ve come to know and love. These days higher charitable giving is harder than ever to prioritize but we believe so strongly in the gift of a GHS education that we find ways to give as much as we can to support the school year after year.
