Cutting Edge Giving Initiative


About this Giving Initiative

Simply put, this initiative is to provide Guardian with upgraded technology so that both teachers and students are thoroughly equipped to positively impact our world for Christ. In today’s world, technology is essential for learning, working, and even building relationships. We aim to provide the best teaching and learning tools so that GCA students and graduates are positioned for successful Christian leadership at every stage in their lives.

 

Teaching Tools: Document cameras, Surface Pros, and large mounted classroom monitors equipping teachers to engage students more successfully in critical concepts.

Learning Tools: New student laptops, increased network speed, and Internet security measures allowing our young ones to safely learn more effectively.

Athletic tools: Sports Complex cameras and remote-viewing systems enabling coaches to better train and mentor our student athletes.

The total cost for the needed technology enhancements is

$230,000

However, God has already provided half of what we need through a generous matching gift of up to

$115,000

We must raise $115,000 by December 31, 2020 to maximize this matching gift.

Will you partner with us to enable Guardian to be on the Cutting Edge of Christian education in our region?

While God can provide these gifts in any way He chooses, experience has shown that we will need gifts that look similar to the following to meet our goal.

Did you know that the CARES Act provides new opportunities for givers to make a charitable IMPACT in 2020?

Increased charitable deduction thresholds allow givers new options for giving in a tax-advantaged way prior to December 31, 2020. For more information, visit https://national.ncfgiving.com/forms/caresact or contact a tax or financial advisor.

  A Message from our Head of School

Please join me and my wife in supporting this important initiative which benefits every GCA student. Together we can make a huge difference to ensure that our students are powerfully positioned for successful Christian leadership at every stage in their lives.

 We are working hard toward:

  • Greater loving impact on our culture
  • Further reach in our influence for the good of all
  • Deeper realization of the lasting peace of God in others

Our effort here is to partner the provision of parents and the resources of supporters with the gifts and dedication of our educators to raise leaders who bless us all. We seek those who have an affinity to this vision and will work collaboratively for its accomplishment.

I’m so grateful for this wonderful matching gift opportunity. Please join us in making your best gift to GCA by December 31, 2020.

Vince Carroll, EdD

 Head of School
