Dear Graded Friends,
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in giving to Graded. Since 1920, Graded has been recognized as an educational leader, dedicated to inspiring excellence, fostering intercultural competence, and empowering students to become engaged, ethical citizens. Like most top independent, non-profit, American schools, Graded relies upon philanthropic contributions to fulfill its mission. Tuition alone does not cover the entire cost of a child's Graded education.
It is only with the participation of all stakeholders – current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, students, corporate and foundation partners, faculty and staff, and friends -- that Graded can reach its goals and achieve its vision for the future. We look forward to talking to you about the importance of participating. If you have any questions, comments, or would like to make a gift, please contact Chief Development Officer Tracy Harrison at +55 11 3747-4800 ext. 202 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
