Just a few short weeks ago, the "Sweet Sixteen" Class of 2018 graduated from Grand River Academy.
What a beautiful day it was for GRA! From the meaningful ceremony, to the family and friends joining
our graduates in celebration, it was the perfect way to acknowledge the fine accomplishments of these
In the fall we asked friends and supporters of Grand River Academy why they give. We heard back
heartwarming stories and funny examples such as the friendships made during late night dorm
shenanigans, lessons learned from faculty in evening study sessions, and off campus trips on the
weekends. Our supporters give because they want to continue the relationships formed among
students, faculty, and staff. These bonds are what make GRA unique and successful.
We kindly request your consideration of a gift to Grand River Academy in the name of the Class of
2018 and the Faculty and Staff who have helped make our students' journey possible.
Donations made to GRA's Annual Fund, the Blue & White Fund, support many features that make our
campus home. These include student life programming, financial/scholarship assistance, athletics,
faculty professional development and homes, facility updates, and areas of greatest need.
You're invited to support our young men, faculty, and staff before the fiscal year ends June 30, 2018 in a
way that is most meaningful to you and your family.
