This payroll deduction program allows GBSD employees to support the foundation that supports them. Contact the HR department to sign up to have a monthly payroll deduction of any amount sent to the GBEF every month.

100% of your donations are returned to district classrooms through the Innovation Grant process. The classroom you make GREAT could be your own!

The GBEF has partnered with Volunteers of America’s vehicle donation program to receive donated vehicles: cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, motor homes, travel trailers, and aircraft to sell on their virtual lot or at auction. Proceeds from the sale supports the GBEF.  The process is simple, hassle-free, and convenient.

Honor a Teacher

We know that a great teacher, a caring administrator, diligent custodian or welcoming secretary can make a BIG difference to students and parents. Making a donation to the GBEF makes it easy for you to show your appreciation. Your donation will be used to fund classroom grants given each spring – grants that purchase musical instruments, additional classroom technology and other great ideas from our teachers. We will send a personal “thank you” to let your honoree know that you appreciate them.

Leaving a gift to the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation at the time of your passing, often through a will or living trust allows you to leave a legacy of learning. You can also make a difference by designating the Foundation as a successor beneficiary of a financial or retirement account, or life insurance policy. Contact Vicki Moen if you would like more information.

Many companies provide matching funds for any donation you make to the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation. When making a donation, check to see if your gift could do more by applying for matching fund from your employer.

The Touchstone Paver campaign orchestrated by the Gresham Japanese Garden gives back 20% of the donation to GBEF. Purchase your commemorative touchstone paver today AND earn 20% for GBEF at the same time.
