We invite you to celebrate granting over $900,000 toward creative and exemplary educational opportunities throughout Grosse Ile at our 4TH Annual Make a Million Gala on March 29, 2014.

Make a Million is a rousing party filled with the best of vintage Vegas and hosted by Liberace, The Rat Pack, Marilyn, Liza, Elvis and Elton. Grosse Ile Golf & Country Club becomes a full-scale casino complete with Blackjack, slots, craps and more. The house will be bursting with excitement as Lady Luck sends just-for-fun gamblers home with thousands of $$$$ in spectacular prizes like diamond jewelry from ACE Diamond Jewelers, Fastracking in a Ferrari, a Garland Golf Getaway, a Portrait by Pat Mech, Year-long Dance Lessons from Dance Grosse Ile and a Private In-home Poker Party.

Your sponsorship of the Make A Million Gala will help GIEF achieve our $1,000,000 milestone. Grosse Ile is proud of the excellent educational opportunities available through its schools and community organizations. Often there are enrichment programs or projects that would not be possible without the GIEF and you.

More programs like these GIEF grants: Over 100 iPads in our schools, PLC Teacher Training, Literacy Intervention, Elementary Spanish, ACT preparation, Marching Band Uniforms, Microscopes, Calculators, Pottery Wheels, Boar’s Head, a Nature & Land Conservancy Courtyard, Athletic Coaches’ Training and Physical Education Equipment, Field Trips, Literacy and Geography materials.

Grosse Ile is a unique community whose greatest assets lie in its commitment to excellence in education. Please join us in celebrating this tradition and ensuring its future.

Why Support Make A Million Gala - Watch Now!

Mission Statement
The Grosse Ile Educational Foundation, Inc is a volunteer, non-profit community organization committed to life long educational experiences for the students and families of Grosse Ile. We do this by financially supporting creative and exemplary educational opportunities provided through Grosse Ile Township Schools and the community.

Needs of the Foundation
When one thinks of donating to a foundation you can often refer to what we are looking for- time, talent, and treasure. Not only are we looking for money to give back to our schools and community, but we are also looking for volunteers who have time and talent to assist us in raising the funds; through committee work, special events, and donated goods and services.

Foundation Priorities
The GIEF has prioritized eight key areas of interest. This list provides a framework for the board when considering grants to be awarded. These are reviewed annually and updated as the needs of the schools and community change.
