Celebrating 25 Years of Championing Teachers, Empowering Students
Making our district a GREAT place to learn
Scramble For Students
We are gearing up for our 24th Scramble For Students golf tournament – and it’s going to be our best ever!
Join us on Monday, September 16th at beautiful Persimmon Country Club for a great day of golf that benefits the students in our school district.
Sponsorships are available at a variety of pricing levels and options.
We are anticipating selling out the tournament again this year so don’t delay and sign up today!
25 years is something to celebrate! In the past quarter of a century, the GBEF has infused $2.2 million into the Gresham-Barlow School District. That is a lot of technology, science material, reading assistance and classroom enhancements that our students would have missed without the GBEF and our donors. Our endowment is over $1 million and we are using those dollars to help make our district a great place to learn. Thank you to all of our past and present board members, volunteers, and community partners who have helped us reach this amazing milestone.
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.
