The Gloucester Education Foundation drives innovation, encourages creativity, expands student opportunities and empowers educators to strengthen teaching and learning in the Gloucester Public School District.
The Gloucester Education Foundation provides our community with a tangible way to have an impact on our schools through donations to GEF, which we then convert into grants for innovative programs and enriching experiences for Gloucester’s children.
GEF is a local non-profit that serves as an innovative thought partner of the Gloucester Public School System. We encourage teachers to think big about what could be possible and we look for ways to expand learning opportunities for students.
