Together with our generous donors, the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation enriches the educational experience of our students by funding excellence in teaching and learning that requires financial support beyond the district. We support excellence in education through EGRNow!, our annual fund, and EGRForever!, our endowment fund. Last year, these provided more than $425,000 in grants, program support, awards and scholarships.
During the 2017-2018 school year, EGRForever! funded more than $170,000 for classroom grants, faculty awards and scholarships, student scholarships and co-curricular funding. In addition, EGRNow! funded more than $255,000 in support of the world language program and elementary paraeducators.
None of that would be possible without your tremendous support of our students and the Foundation.
