Why We Raise Money
The GHSC is responsible for funding SIX major educational programs for Guadalupe’s students, which fall outside the school’s budget. By funding AR, Art Vistas, Ceramics, Project Cornerstone, and Starting Arts, our students can experience art, music, and physical education. The majority of our school year budget goes directly to fund these essential programs.
The GHSC also hosts community events each year to bring Guadalupe families together. We kick off each year with the Ice Cream Social in the fall, the Winterfest event to celebrate reading in early December, the School Carnival & Art Vistas Show in the spring, and a family picnic.
Classroom Giving Drive
The classroom giving drive is held at the beginning of school and is entirely separate from the GHSC budget. Money raised from the classroom giving drive funds field trips and classroom spending specific to YOUR child’s class. A small portion also supports these school-wide programs: the STEAM Lab, Safety Patrol, Mileage Club, special assemblies, and extra books for the Library. You can make a Giving Drive donation now on GHSC TOOLKIT. For more detailed information on your Classroom Giving Drive amount, click on the grade listed below.
The annual Guadalupe WALKATHON is hosted by GHSC and helps raise a large portion of our annual budget. We look to students and their families to go out to the community via email, social media, or simply knocking on doors to ask for pledges or simple donations to the GHSC.

Many of the companies in our community offer a Company Matching program for employees to double the donations they make to non-profit organization like the GHSC. Whether it’s monetary donations or volunteer hours, every dollar or volunteer hour helps the students. CLICK BELOW to find out if your company doubles your donation or more details on matching.
