GPEF donates over $50,000 in grants to GISD teachers

Seven grants in the amount of $53,334.29 were presented to teachers across the Graham Independent School District last Friday by the Graham Public Education Foundation.

GPEF is a non-profit organization which provides funding to the district, outside of the budget, through a grant application process and obtains money through donations and fundraising events such as Kitchen Crawl. The board for GPEF, with members of the school district administration, review the requests and choose grants would make an impact.

“It is to help supplement money that they can’t get from the administration,” GPEF President Sara McCall said. “These are things the school cannot supply within their annual budget, so we like to help them and do innovative things(…)we like them to think outside of the box, just things the school is not going to pick up, but we can.”
