You may direct your unrestricted annual fund gift to one of seven priority areas below for which you are most passionate. Your gift supports the priority area you select within the current fiscal year and is an investment in our students and their education.

What is the Fund for Good Counsel: Family of Funds?

The Fund for Good Counsel: Family of Funds is our annual giving campaign that begins on July 1 and ends June 30 of every year. We invite you to invest in our students and their education by making a gift to one of the seven priority areas of impact.

Why is the Fund for Good Counsel: Family of Funds so important?

Your annual fund gift is the most important contribution you can make. Good Counsel is an independent school and depends almost entirely on tuition and annual fundraising to operate. Your gift is vital as it allows Good Counsel to strengthen its financial future and continue to provide unique and impactful opportunities for our students.

How can I make my gift?

Your gifts can be made online through our secure giving site. You can also mail your check to Good Counsel at 17301 Old Vic Blvd., Olney, MD 20832. Should you wish to see if your company will match your donation or make a gift through transfer of securities, please see “Other Ways to Give.”

How are the funds used?

Dollars raised through the Fund for Good Counsel: Family of Funds are allocated to a reserve fund that supports the greatest needs within the current fiscal year.

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Contributions are fully tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. Donors receive a receipt for their records.
