The Groton Education Foundation (GEF) is a non-profit organization, incorporated by the State of Connecticut and staffed by volunteers - all citizens concerned with the quality of education in Groton.
The Foundation's goal is to support learning innovation and to promote learning excellence in our community. By pooling donated money, the Foundation is able to provide teachers, librarians, and other educators with readily accessible resources to pilot learning projects and to help develop new learning processes.
Since the Foundation's grant program began in 1997, over $10,000 per year has been given to educators in our community to expand the horizons of our children. To date, the GEF has given away over $217,000 to educational programs within the Groton community.
The Foundation is independent of all public and other private organizations. And since volunteers do all the Foundation's work, donations translate directly into grants for learning initiatives.
Please consider making a donation to the GEF!
