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.
The GIEF has prioritized nine 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.
