About Greater Clark County Schools Educational Foundation
The Foundation was founded as a nonprofit corporation in 1999 to be a source of charitable funds for Greater Clark County Schools. As a result of our generous donors and excellent board leadership, we have grown from giving away several hundred dollars annually to providing almost $100,000 in grants each year. That’s money that makes a difference in classrooms, such as helping fund programs like the transformational Ford Next Generation Learning initiative. We also support College and Career Readiness initiatives such as teacher externships, ACT testing for all juniors and workplace skills training for every high school student. Finally, we provide grants that give our educators access to more effective resources for teaching.
The Foundation has benefited from past partnership opportunities with companies and are happy to fund the teacher externship program. Closing the gap between the classroom and real world application, externships allows our educators to provide the best possible education to our students and share best practices with their coworkers.
