We work to raise awareness and help people affected by our cause.
Our success is measured in the number of people we can help with the quality of programs and services we provide. These programs are fueled by our dedicated staff, caring volunteers and generous donors like you.
Strong & Stable Families
Research has shown that children, especially those at risk, are most successful when efforts are designed to engage and support the family’s ability to provide a safe and stable environment for their children. Granite Education Foundation is committed to support our community’s efforts to increase protective factors and support whole child development so students attend school ‘ready to learn’.
By addressing basic and emergency needs, supporting efforts to end intergenerational poverty and collaborating with GSD community centers; our goal is for all students to come to school ‘ready to learn’.
Next Level Learning
Partnering with the community to enrich student learning, we leverage our most important investment – the educational and personal success of our kids.
Next Level Learning opportunities have the potential to be the great equalizer in education. Granite Education Foundation believes that opportunities such as these are important elements to the academic experience and to a successful adulthood. We strive to provide opportunities for students to recognize their potential through varied experiences.
Regular participation in high quality before and after school learning, field trips and enriching summer school programs have been shown to help low-income students succeed academically on par with their more affluent peers. These programs, characterized by strong school-community partnerships, can also help high-performing students stay engaged and achieve even greater levels of understanding. In short, high-quality learning opportunities are for everyone - and the benefits they create are critical to our future economy.
Educator & Staff Support
Teachers are our nation builders—the strength of every profession in our country grows out of the knowledge and skills that teachers help to instill in our children.
As a community, we must do much, much more to fully appreciate and support their work.
With the transition to more rigorous achievement standards and better student assessments, a focus on data to drive instruction, and the use of technology to personalize learning, teachers are carrying an incredible amount of responsibility with little recognition and support.
Helping students thrive in their personal, educational, and career planning.
In an increasingly competitive professional environment, it is critical that students are prepared to economically sustain themselves when their high school education is complete. Granite Education Foundation is committed to support students in finding personal purpose, potential, and a pathway to their future.
