What is the Greenwood ISD Education Foundation?

The Greenwood ISD Education Foundation is a local grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization formed by a group of business, community and educational leaders dedicated to closing funding gaps and delivering excellence in education to all Greenwood ISD students. The Foundation is supportive of—yet separate from—Greenwood ISD. We provide an avenue for the community and businesses to raise funds to directly impact the education of our children.

Who does the Foundation benefit?

The entire community! Students feel the support of their community and earn recognition for their accomplishments, encouraging them to achieve their goals. Teachers are supported in their innovative ideas and motivated to create exciting classroom atmospheres, keeping students engaged and inspired.
Businesses invest in the education of today’s students who will become tomorrow’s leaders, building a powerful and skilled workforce. Our community reaps the rewards of higher educational standards, including increased quality of life, improved economic growth, and generations of ambitious citizens.

How can I help?

The Greenwood ISD Education Foundation generates resources through community investment in the form of donations and fundraiser participation. Your tax-deductible contribution is an investment in the future! In addition to community events throughout the year and giving campaigns, we welcome individual donations. Every dollar donated to the Foundation stays within our school district to assist our students and teachers.
No matter how large or small your donation, it will be gratefully received and carefully appropriated to provide educational opportunities for the students of GISD. Support may include cash contributions, annual pledges, memorial gifts, stocks, planned giving, matching donations, or in-kind gifts.
