Thank you for considering a gift to AGS

Like most independent schools, AGS depends upon the support of its contributors to bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of educating each student. We are sincerely grateful for the tremendous levels of support that enable AGS to provide the finest education to every girl, every day. We invite you to explore and learn more about how you can help advance the mission and goals of Atlanta Girls’ School.

  2. You typically cannot make charitable stock gifts through an online trading service. If you trade with an online service, please call Charles Elsas for assistance with the transfer of your gift. 
  3. The value of your gift is the average of the highest price and the lowest price on the date the gift is complete and the securities are registered in Atlanta Girls’ School’s name.
