We make the difference. We engage community partners and businesses to bridge the gap between federal and state funding.
We provide connections that impact deserving children and give them a chance for success.
It is very rewarding to be part of an organization that focuses on making a difference in the lives of children. The GEF helps with a wide range of needs from the most basic that many of us take for granted like food, shoes and eyeglasses to assisting budding artists to share their talents and pursue scholarships. Helping young people is an investment in the future of our community. Volunteering with the GEF is a way for me to give back and share my blessings with others!
