GSI Volunteer Grant Program


What is the Volunteer Grant Program?

  • It is an opportunity to make financial aid available to  GPLHS students by volunteering at GSI Thrift.

  • It helps GSI Thrift by encouraging volunteerism and therefore generates more revenue which can be used to support GPLHS and other ministries

How does it work for the volunteers?

  • Volunteers become a part of the program by completing the volunteer registration form available by clicking the button below.

  • Volunteers work 96 hours between July 1 and June 30; GSI will give GPLHS up to $600 towards this grant program for every 96 hours worked.

  • One to three people may work together to get the 96 hours; individuals may work for up to three grants (288 hours).

  • Volunteers will have a training session in which they will learn about the various tasks that can be done.

How does it work for GPLHS students?

  • Any student enrolled at GPLHS may apply for a GSI Volunteer Grant after June 1; click the 'Tuition Grant Application' button below to print your form.

  • Applications must be received by June 30.

  • When a grant is awarded, it will be applied directly to the recipient's account for the upcoming school year. 

What if I have a question?

  • If you have questions, contact Karen Livingston (520-5839) or Liz Arndt (881-8010).
