A GAAA Fund-Raising and Advancement team with friends are seen below in a light moment at the Philanthropic Services for Institutions (PSI) Convention in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. PSI is a branch of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist that handles fund-raising programs for schools and church organizations. GAAA/BCJA are part of that program. A sub-committee of the
Board of Trustees now oversees fund-raising and marketing and the school has a director of development in the presence of Dr. Gary Gardner. The Advancement team will handle the annual fund, a phonathon, a direct mail list, major gifts, and planned giving and later on a capital campaign targeted at Plant development and scholarships. Dr. Gardner formerly served as business manager of one of our academies in central California.
