Greenville Educational Foundation

Each of us has the chance to touch the hearts and minds of the next generation.
We can do this together by offering resources for an extra layer of support and innovation
to our schools. That’s why we agreed to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Greenville
Educational Foundation — to join with other teachers, administrators, business leaders,
parents and neighbors to say — regardless of the economic situation of a student’s family
— we can enrich, broaden and nurture our young people by making a philanthropic
investment in the Greenville Educational Foundation. The Foundation has a much different
role than the PTO or the booster club. It is a powerful tool for all of us to provide ongoing
enrichment and diverse opportunities that are essential to a strong future.

Our Priorities
We have created a Strategic Action Plan to set a course to identify them. The community
and business leaders who served as our Strategic Priorities Advisors deserve and have our
gratitude. We are also seeking input from the broader community on our priorities and
goals. Our initial priorities emerged from the input received from our Strategic Priorities
Advisors:
• To raise visibility of GEF in the community
• To expand involvement and participation in GEF initiatives
• To develop, refine and improve our priorities for grantmaking
• To raise funds for the GEF
• To refine and communicate effectively the grant process
• To partner with others in the community

Our Mission
The mission of the Greenville Educational Foundation is to strengthen and enhance the experience of students in the Greenville Central School District by sponsoring program innovations for students and supporting superior teaching and educational leadership. Passionate about excellence in education, the Foundation actively seeks the involvement of individuals, families, businesses and friends of Greenville in all of its initiatives and efforts.

As a grassroots nonprofit, tax-exempt foundation serving the community, the Foundation serves to build the school/community partnership in several ways. Since it receives no tax dollars, the Foundation is an independent organization that works in cooperation with the school district and the Board of Education. Unlike public agencies and PTO’S, the Foundation can create an endowment to generate long-term financial support and enrichment for our children.

Right now, the Foundation is focused on a minigrant program to grow our artist-in-residence series, and use the model created by the Bank of Greene County to establish an intensive mentoring program for high school students in partnership with the business community.

As it grows in support and leadership, the Greenville Educational Foundation seeks broadbased input in an ongoing effort to consider innovations for our students, including distance learning, technology enhancements, wireless service and green, environmentally friendly initiatives.
