In 2012, the Foundation set a goal to create a permanent Endowment Fund of $100,000.  As a result of last year’s successful campaign, we now have $100,000 invested with the San Diego Foundation. Please help us reach our new goal of $125,000 by the Fall of 2020.

Foothiller Friends ($250 donation) receive a 4x8” gray tile on the Humanities Building;

Foothiller Founders ($1,000) receive an 8x8” gray tile on the 1937 Old Gym.

To place an order, mail a check GHS Educational Foundation
