Double Your Impact

Double Your Impact With An Endowment Of Any Amount


Community Foundation Endowment Challenge Runs to June 15th

The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties has awarded Gale Academy of Environmental Science and Technology $10,000 as a match toward building the Friends of Gale Academy’s Endowment Fund. We have until June 15, 2017 to meet this match.  Can we count on you to become a matchmaker?

Dollar for Dollar Match

For every dollar you contribute to our endowment fund between now and June 15, 2017, the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties will match it with another dollar, so your $1,000 donation, for example, becomes $2,000!

Since 1997 the Friends of the Gale Academy of Environmental Sciences and Technology has supported the Gale Academy which is a Choice Program at Forest Hill Community High School, an International Baccalaureate (IB) World school. The Friends established its endowment fund with the Community Foundation in 2003 to build an ongoing financial platform which will grow over time to support our mission. The Academy offers a hands-on approach to environmental science education that provides students with a strong platform of knowledge and skills to achieve their career goals. The Friends fund scholarships, field trips and equipment and act as mentors, speakers, science-fair judges to the students.

Juniors and Seniors from our IB Environmental Systems and Society course toured the South Florida Water Management District’s Analytical Chemistry Lab. They learned how samples from across our watershed are collected, sorted, and tested for various research projects and monitoring programs.
