Thank You To Our Generous Donors

In Recognition of Donations of Money and Memorabilia

We want to thank the wonderful supporters of the GHS Museum who have donated money or memorabilia to the Museum. 

Sponsorship Opportunities: We need your help!


leave printThe GHS Museum and Alumni Association need your support to continue our efforts to celebrate, preserve, and display our remarkable Foothiller history. As we look ahead to moving into the 3300 square foot dance room (rec room in old Girls PE Building) in 2019, we need your financial donations to fund new display cases since only a few cases in the current Museum are portable.
Also, please help us fund our newest book documenting the 62-year Pictorial History of the Christmas Pageant, a two year project.

Donations of any amount are welcome. To make a donation, please donate via Pay Pal or write a check payable to GHS Educational Foundation and mail to GHS Museum, P.O. Box 1043, La Mesa, CA 91944.
