- About Us
Preserving the educational opportunities that make our school system great.
Today, the role of the East Grand Rapids School Foundation in funding educational excellence is more important than ever before. The current endowment allows us to fund over $110,000 each year, but that is only enough to fulfill half of the grants requests we receive. These requests continue to increase as teachers and staff seek ways to provide a quality educational experience in the face of significant cuts in state funding.
The Foundation’s EGR NOW! and EGR Forever! Funds are supported by donors like you: parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, residents and business owners in our community who want the educational experience at East Grand Rapids Pubic schools to continue to be the best possible.
