Treasurer’s Report

During the 2015-2016 school year, the endowment of the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation provided over $150,000 in grants, awards and scholarships to further its mission to enhance teaching and learning within the EGR Schools.  In addition, the Foundation’s EGRNow! Campaign raised $406,000 this fiscal year to preserve programs that were identified for potential elimination for the 2016-2017 school year.  Raising this money allows programs such as elementary world language, art, physical education and music; K-1 paraeducators: and high school performing arts center management to be maintained for the next school year.

The endowment has a balance of just under $3.8 million as of the end of our fiscal year, which will allow us to have an impact on our students and programs in the coming years.  Thank you for your donations to EGRNow!, EGRForever! and for your attendance and support at Foundation events.  Your continued support of the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation will allow our schools to maintain their excellent reputation and provide for the current and future needs of our students.
