With the arrival of a new year, new decade and new leadership, GEF’s focus for 2020 is all about “Discovering New Treasures!”
Thanks to you and your support, GEF celebrated these exciting milestones in 2019:
- Awarded more than $160,000 through our Grants to Teachers program
- Funded $29,000 to the Ball High STEM & Bio Med Syndaver Lab
- Continued support of the Book Bus after an initial $25,000 investment
- Provided $10,000 to our First Year Teacher Academy
To allow us to carry out our important work of enriching the educational experience and preparing students for the future by providing financial assistance to GISD educators, schools and students, GEF is making preparations for our annual Seaside Spring Soiree. On Thursday, March 5, 2020 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., supporters of GISD will gather at the 1880 Garten Verein to celebrate public education and pay homage to the GISD Book Bus with a Treasure Island theme. We’ll enjoy hors d’oeuvres, libations, a silent auction, live music by Mickey Hobbs and desserts.
