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.
