How We Use Funds


Reading Matters Phone-a-thon

Student calling will be March 4th – Answer the Call!

Books should be both a window and a mirror and we want to ensure that our students see themselves in the books that are available in our school libraries.

Our 2020 Phone-a-Thon will provide funding so that every library in the district can add books – eBooks, audio books and physical books, that reflect the wonderful diversity in our district.

Please donate today because Reading Matters!


Because the GBEF really does believe that reading matters, we have supported literacy improvements in the district since the inception of the foundation.  Funds generated by our annual Reading Matters Phone-a-Thon are given to the school district to support reading for every student at every grade level in the school district.
