Donate to FOGS

Art, music, drama are crucial to children's growth and well-being. For many, they are the lifelines that nurture unique talents, build confidence, and promote positive feelings about school.

Goethe's incredible teachers equip and motivate our children to excel in the performing arts. Help us equip our gymnasium so we have a stage worthy of their efforts!

We are asking parents, alumni, neighbors, and local businesses to donate to "All the Gym's a stage" campaign. An anonymous donor has provided funds to match contributions 3 to 1. That means a $10 donation turns into $40 for the gym.
