Help us provide resources that create opportunities for success

We provide Granite School District students access to resources that improve educational outcomes.

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.

I have always had a passion for bettering education and for helping children. When I was asked to serve on the Granite Education Foundation Board, I was elated as I would be helping both with education and with children. As I have been serving on the board for the past ten years, I have come to appreciate how the foundation helps the individual child. The foundation cares about helping make life better for one child at a time. I have seen smiles on the faces of a child who has been a recipient of the good works of the foundation.

“Top Education Foundations In The Nation”

The Granite Education Foundation ranks 14th in the nation of the 50 largest school district foundations. The ranking is based on effectiveness of an education fund/foundation at generating and sustaining financial resources to serve its students. It also takes into consideration effectiveness of distributing financial resources based on the number of students in the district. And recently added is the ability to grow and sustain large numbers of volunteers which can be leveraged in different ways to improve public schools.
