Goka Society

Help dreams come true for our young women.

In 2007, founding principal Jeanne Goka opened the doors of the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders.

Under her leadership, what could have been an ordinary school instead became a place where dreams come true, where young women from economically disadvantaged backgrounds gain the skills and confidence necessary to pursue college educations and careers.

After 10 years at the Ann Richards School, Ms. Goka retired from her 40-year career as an educator and administrator.

In her honor, longtime supporters Stacey Hadash and Terry McDonell created the Goka Society, a giving society to inspire younger donors (under 40) to support the Ann Richards School and the continuation of Ms. Goka’s vision.

Join the Goka Society with an annual contribution of $250 or more

Donors who give $250 or more annually may be recognized as part of the Goka Society and invited to special events at the Ann Richards School throughout the year.

As a Goka Society member, you will receive special donor benefits:

    • Invitation to special events at the Ann Richards School

For Ann Richards School Alumnae

Stacey Hadash and Terry McDonell’s gift made it possible for the Ann Richards School’s Class of 2018 graduates to be part of the Goka Society for four years while they’re in college.

In addition, Ann Richards School alumnae who are in college may be recognized as part of the Goka Society with an annual gift of $25.

After college, alumnae who make a $250 gift will be invited to join the Goka Society.
