We are kicking off our annual GGUSD Charity Campaign today on November 13, 2017. The campaign runs through December 22 and is the perfect opportunity for GGUSD employees to express our generosity and make a one-time pledge or ongoing payroll deduction to support our non-profit partners that do so much for GGUSD students, families, and communities. Let’s make 2017 our most generous year yet and show our partners just how important they are to us. There is no better time than during the holiday season to help families in need and the GGUSD Charity Campaign does just that.

GGUSD employees may contribute to:
