Together with our generous donors, the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation enriches the experience of all students by investing in programs and educational enhancements that support the whole child. We're redefining excellence in our schools. With you as our partner, we're making outstanding opportunities accessible to all, so all our students can reach their full potential.
Over the course of students' thirteen years in East schools from kindergarten through graduation, the Foundation and its donors will contribute more than $6 million to their education in the form of program support, classroom grants, faculty awards and scholarships, student scholarships and co-curricular funding. To provide for future needs, the Foundation has built an endowment of more than $12 million. In coming years that endowment will generate more than half a million dollars every year without decreasing the principal.
None of that would be possible without your tremendous support of our students and the Foundation. Together, we're investing in our students, because the future belongs to Pioneers.
