Annual Giving Pathways
The American School of Guatemala is launching its first Annual Giving Program aligned with CAG’s vision to support our students as they learn, grow and thrive as individuals. Your gift can be designated to one or a combination of five different pathways for giving:
- Program Excellence
- Professional Excellence
- Building Excellence
- Meaningful Lives Scholarship Fund
Help us continue to build meaningful experiences for our student by investing in the educational opportunities we provide at the American School of Guatemala and shaping the vision of excellence we started more than 70 years ago.
Gifts to Professional Excellence are recruiting, developing, and retaining engaged and innovative subject matter experts who in turn have a direct impact on exceptional student learning. On-site and Off-site professional development attendance, action research, and cutting-edge technology integration require commitment and resources. Contributions support teachers by offering meaningful professional development to keep faculty student-centered, inspired, and at the forefront of their field.
Gifts to Building Excellence support the development of a master site plan and for the upgrade of the campus facilities, which enhances programs Pre-Kinder through Grade 12. Gifts to Building Excellence are currently designated for the up fit of the cafeteria and the construction of Learning Enrichment Center and the STEAM Programs.
The Endowment Fund was established in 2017 by the Board of Trustees for the purpose of sustaining our school as a vibrant, world-class educational institution over the long-term. Many of the world’s best schools have endowment funds, founded through the generosity of donors, which enable the school to stay at the forefront of education through the interest from this funding for key innovations and programs. It is our aspiration that the Endowment Fund will play a similar, strategically important role in shaping the future development of CAG.
Interest generated from Endowment Fund will support the PBA program and Meaningful Lived Scholarship Fund for the 2018 Anual Fund.
Gifts to the Meaningful Lives Scholarship Fund provide full and partial scholarships to students who qualify for the PBA program and families experiencing financial difficulties. This scholarship fund allows students to attend who would otherwise not be able to afford the CAG program or would have to leave the school because of financial hardship to continue their education at CAG. The ultimate goal of this fund is to build an income-producing endowment that will support students at CAG for generations to come.
