Give GIPS Week | May 14-21

Give GIPS Week | May 14-21


The GIPS Foundation has launched a special give week coinciding with the last official week of school this year to invite community members to express appreciation for, and solidarity with, the phenomenal teachers and staff of the Grand Island Public Schools. 

The enormity of the effort to move school to a virtual environment with little training or warning, all while continuing to support students has been nothing short of amazing. Teachers and staff of the Grand Island Public Schools rose up and with determined spirit, delivered a continued curriculum to keep students connected, learning, and even eating!

It doesn’t stop there! In addition, teachers and staff of the Grand Island Public Schools continued to reach into their own pocketbooks and since April 21, they have given more than $80,000 to ensure that the GIPS Foundation can continue to invest in the success of our students in the year ahead. The message was, “I give hope, I give GIPS.  We are better, stronger TOGETHER.”

For one week only, the GIPS Foundation is extending this campaign out to the community. Donors can give online by clicking the donate button. All levels of giving are accepted. Those who give $60 or more are eligible for the same t-shirt as GIPS staff with the “I give hope” message. You can share your solidarity and appreciation by making your gift either online or by mail: GIPS Foundation, PO Box 4904, Grand Island, NE 68802. 

We give HOPE. We give GIPS. We are better, stronger, TOGETHER.
