Making an Impact

The unique mission of Girard College – to provide children from underserved communities with an excellent academic and residential program – has endured and thrived for 175 years thanks to the steadfast support of our community.

We celebrate our friends, donors, and partners who stand alongside our students as they navigate the future and anchor their impact on the world. You extend the legacy of Stephen Girard by securing the tools our students need to create legacies of their own.

Choosing Girard College was easy for our family. I knew from our first visit that Girard would be a safe place for Antoine to live and learn.

The Steel & Garnet Fund

The Steel & Garnet Fund is Girard College’s annual giving program and provides flexible, immediate funds for the College. Annual giving is crucial to enriching the lives of students through arts, athletics, classroom resources, technology, professional development for faculty, uniforms, and more. Each gift to the Steel & Garnet Fund helps to maintain the financial stability of the institution, generating critical resources for our students.

Invest in our students with your own gift to The Steel & Garnet Fund. All gifts, regardless of the size, help ensure that each and every scholar has an exceptional learning experience at Girard College.
