Celebrating 25 Years of Championing Teachers, Empowering Students
Making our district a GREAT place to learn
The GBEF is organizing a Cocoa Crawl to enhance Gresham’s Spirit of Christmas celebration on Saturday, November 24.
The Cocoa Crawl is a fun, family-friendly event where participants purchase a $10 commemorative mug and then sip, shop, and stroll through Historic Downtown Gresham and surrounding businesses for a few hours prior to the tree lighting at the Arts Plaza.
You can purchase a commemorative mug (required to participate) at Glass Butterfly, Gresham Ford, or Core Coffee – but call first, they are selling quickly and are only available while supplies last.
The Cocoa Crawl begins at 4 pm with the final sip stop at the tree lighting at 6 pm.
Scramble For Students Golf Tournament
THANK YOU to all of our generous sponsors, our golfers and our volunteers for making our 23rd tournament our most successful yet.
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.
