Up to $30,000 may be awarded for the fall 2022 cycle. There is no restriction on the number of grant applications or the dollar amount that can be requested.  However, please keep in mind the Foundation budgeted amount to award and their funding philosophy encourages equity in giving among the District’s buildings and the community.  A highlight for the Foundation is conducting applicant interviews and learning more about the amazing things you are doing with, and for, students and families in Gladstone.

 

In spring of 2022 the Gladstone Education Foundation awarded $15,000 in grants.  All spring 2022 applicants received full, or partial, funding for their special projects.

 

Applications for fall 2022 will be reviewed by GEF board members the first week of November and applicant interviews will take place on November 15 and/or 16 depending on the number of applications received.

GEF Auction resulted in gross revenue of $71,565 this year, an $8,000 improvement over the prior virtual event.

The Gladstone Education Foundation held its second Virtual Auction Fundraiser last Friday, May 13.  It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase what the Foundation does, as well as highlight students who have benefitted from the Foundation’s support.  Your generosity will enable the Foundation to continue its mission of enhancing learning opportunities for Gladstone students.  Thanks to everyone who registered and participated in this year’s event.

If you missed the Virtual Show, you can still view it on You Tube (https://youtu.be/n-FHeSlKvcs).  This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Foundation, see student performances, and view previous projects the Gladstone Education Foundation has funded.

Watch for information about the 2023 auction coming soon.
