Please Answer The Call on March 4th
2020 Reading Matters Phone-a-Thon Answer the Call on March 4th!
Reading Matters – that says it all. Reading is fundamental to all learning and this year’s Phone-a-Thon will help fund book titles that are culturally relevant for our students. Books are both a window and a mirror and we want to provide books that reflect the diversity of our district.
You can make a donation today that will purchase books – eBooks, audio books, and physical books for our school libraries.
Because we all know that READING MATTERS!
Our Mission – Bringing GREAT Things to the Classroom
The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation is dedicated to supporting every student in the Gresham-Barlow School District. We partner with our community to provide funding to foster innovative and engaging learning experiences and provide opportunities to ensure that every student has what they need to experience a world-competitive education.
Campaigns for Classrooms
The GBEF is supporting crowdfunding for our educators by adding a platform called FoundationGIVE to our website. It’s a GREAT way to mobilize your community in support of students.
If you have a project, program, field trip, or need an addition to your classroom, the GBEF has you covered. Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, this one allows 100% of donations to go to YOU and not to fees or subscription costs.
