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.

GEF's big hat goes off to Applied Materials, a global company with a Gloucester presence, for its recent support on several fronts. In September, the Applied Materials Foundation awarded GEF two grants totaling $34,623 for two projects in physics and robotics at Gloucester High School--more information will be forthcoming on these! And in late September, AMAT employees gathered at the company's Blackburn site in Gloucester to assemble 125 teacher supply kits for educators in all of Gloucester's five elementary schools (*not pictured, Beeman Memorial). Some of the much-needed classrooms supplies included pens and pencils, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer, notebooks, highlighters, tissues, and more.
Many thanks to Applied Materials for its long-standing support of GEF and Gloucester's students and teachers! ______________________________________ ... See MoreSee Less
