Who are we?

Granite Education Foundation is recognized as one of the nation’s foremost education foundations in one of America’s largest school districts. Since 1988, the foundation has served students and teachers in Granite School District by facilitating education programs and providing basic needs such as food, clothing, school supplies and much more. In a school district with 65% of children living at or below the poverty level and 70% of Utah’s refugees living within its borders, Granite Education Foundation works tirelessly with individuals, community leaders and businesses to provide opportunities for all students and support for the district’s dedicated educators.

We have a fast-paced office culture where you can go from a board meeting one minute to unloading a truck full of food donations the next. This is an organization where you go home each day and know exactly how you were able to make a difference. The work we do is recognized on a national scale as we were recently ranked 15th in the nation among education foundations.
