Give Back to the Teachers Who Give Their All!

 

The Greenwood Education Foundation is excited this year to be participating in the Giving Tuesday Campaign.  For those of you unfamiliar with what we do, we have a passion for Greenwood students, and our focus is to make available to all teachers the very best educational tools available to ensure student success.  We do this with the help of parents, teachers and the community at large, and it's a partnership we rely on.  To date, we have given approximately $170,000 in grants to teachers, and it's amazing to see the looks on their faces when we present them with a check that is an answered prayer. 

 

This year has been particularly tough on our teachers as they juggle in-class and remote learning, and though their needs are as great as ever, their focus right now is just plain survival.  This is where you can help.  We're going to begin our campaign on Giving Tuesday, December 1, but we're not ending it there.  December is a month for giving and we're going to challenge everyone to consider giving back to the teachers who give so much to all Greenwood students with a donation to the GEF.  You can be a part of a great not only giving, but gifting experience for these individuals who love on our kids daily.  Not only will you be helping them meet the current and future needs of their students, but you will be giving them a peace that they so desperately seek in 2020. 

 

Please consider your December gift and let your heart be your guide.  The GEF thanks you and the teachers thank you.  Have a blessed holiday season.

I have been president of the Greenwood Education Foundation since it's inception in 2014, and it is my PASSION! The Foundation was formed to enhance the educational opportunities for ALL Greenwood students, and in the past six years, we have awarded over $170,000 in grants to teachers which has allowed them to provide educational curriculum and tools for their students that they would have gone without otherwise. All school districts are not alike. Some have to work harder and be more creative in giving their students the best, and Greenwood is one of those districts. The Foundation is the vehicle that has made that happen, and the winners are our students. As a parent of one former Greenwood student (now in college at Purdue) and a junior at the high school, I see first-hand the challenge teachers have to reach every student, and it is particularly challenging this year in light of COVID. I have heard the stories of the money they have spent out of their own pockets to meet the needs of every child in their classes, but the fact is, they shouldn't have to do that. and we can help. Everyone wants to give every child the best possible opportunity for success, and you can be a part of making that happen by giving to the GEF. December is a month for giving, and nothing warms the heart more than giving to kids and knowing the impact your gift is having on their lives. So please help me help them today by giving generously. Touch a heart; touch a life, be the difference with your gift to the GEF today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The Greenwood Education Foundation strives to be a great partner to teachers in Greenwood! I became involved with this group as a donor and found a great team of volunteers dedicated to providing more classroom resources for teachers leading to more experiences for our students. Our foundation has provided more than $170,000 in grants to teachers for classroom resources! Please consider helping us continue to provide opportunities for the young people in our community by donating to our Foundation and helping me reach my goal of $500!

Tiffany Woods

As a former Greenwood teacher, I know first hand the value the Greenwood Education Foundation has on the classroom. So often our teachers are paying for materials and activities out of their own pockets. The Foundation provides teachers the opportunity to incorporate unique activities into the classroom to motivate and inspire students to achieve their dreams! It has been an honor to serve on the board and help award grants.

Help me reach my goal by donating to this amazing organization!

December 1st, 2020 is Giving Tuesday. As a Board Member of the Greenwood Education Foundation, and the father of three Woodmen daughters, I ask that my friends and family consider donating to GEF! The Greenwood Education Foundation provides assistance to teachers' (and support staff) continued pursuit of ensuring our future leaders are well prepared for success outside of the classroom and to make their positive impact in our world. The financial assistance given by the Greenwood Education Foundation allows teachers to provide learning opportunities that normally would not be available to them, and most importantly, our kids are the beneficiaries of these new and wonderful opportunities. Our teachers need our support now more than ever! I appreciate your consideration in donating to the Foundation!

Please join me in supporting the Greenwood Education Foundation. I proudly serve on the board of this organization that is committed to enhancing educational opportunities and student excellence. This is only made possible by the collaboration of staff, parents, and the community. Twice a year we award grants that allow teachers to bring creativity and innovation to their students in new and exciting ways. Paul and I continue to raise all four of our children in this remarkable community, surrounded by the very best of the best. Please help us fund future ideas and dreams through this campaign!

Katie Webb

As a Greenwood teacher I have seen first hand how the Greenwood Education Foundation has served our community so well. I've even been lucky enough to be a grant recipient myself! Since the inception of the Foundation, GEF has awarded grants to teachers in the amount of $157,000. By funding classroom initiatives, GEF's goal is to impact student learning, promote student excellence, and create a path to brighter future for all students. GEF has awarded grants that cover nearly all subject areas. It is so much fun to see all types of grants get funded, however, being a middle school teacher I particularly loved a grant awarded to the GMS FACS classroom of a hydroponic system so that students could learn how grow their own food! Please join me in supporting the teachers of Greenwood by donating to GEF during Giving Tuesday! 

 

Angie Glynn

As the wife of a teacher, I know the countless hours and extra money put into running a classroom. As the wife of a coach I also know how unrecognized some of those efforts can be. The Greenwood Education Foundation has been helping teachers and coaches in our system create learning environments for our students through the grants and support they provide. I am so honored to be a part of the board and make a difference for these teachers. As a mother of two Greenwood students, I have a vested interest in the school system as a whole and can not wait to see what we can do for every student and faculty member. Please help me reach my goal of $500 during this campaign! Thank you!!

We have two boys in the Greenwood school district and our little girl will be headed to Southwest Elementary next fall. I have had the pleasure of serving on the board for the Greenwood Education Foundation for the past year and half. We have GREAT TEACHERS! And the grants enable them to do so much more for our children! Please consider donating as we continue our mission to fund classroom initiatives to impact student learning, promote student excellence, and create a path to a brighter future for all students!

Paige Rauschuber

As a teacher in Greenwood Community Schools the Foundation has been a huge part of helping me to be successful in my classroom. They have funded numerous grants to buy instruments and other necessities for my room. Help me give back to the Education Foundation that has given so much to me!

John Kreimer

Being married to a teacher, I see firsthand the sacrifices made - physically, emotionally and financially. Education, at times, can be a thankless profession, but most teachers are not in the profession for praise, admiration and financial enrichment. Teachers are dedicated to helping our future by challenging students intellectually, helping them grown personally and being there for them emotionally.

The Greenwood Education Foundation provides assistance to teachers' (and support staff) continued pursuit of ensuring our future leaders are well prepared for success outside of the classroom and to make their positive impact in our world. The financial assistance given by the Greenwood Education Foundation allows teachers to provide learning opportunities that normally would not be available to them, and most importantly, our kids are the beneficiaries of these new and wonderful opportunities.

As the majority of families have been impacted by remote/distance/e-learning, 2020 has given rise to the importance of those individuals involved with education. Please help me help the teachers and consider donating today!

 

Anne Irwin

As a former teacher I know the countless hours and extra money put into education. As the wife of a coach and athletic director, I also know how unrecognized some of those efforts can be. The Greenwood Education Foundation has been helping teachers and coaches in our system create learning environments for our students through the grants and support they provide. I am so honored to be a part of the board that has raised $157,000 since the foundations inception. I have two students in Greenwood Schools that have have directly benefited from the grants GEF has provided. Please help me reach my goal of $500 to continue supporting the best teachers & administration! Thank you!!

Tuesday, December 1st is Giving Tuesday. Giving on this day can mean contributing financially to a worthy cause such as the Greenwood Education Foundation. I have been honored to be a part of the Greenwood Education Foundation since its inception in the fall of 2014. In six short years, we have established a board, hired a part time executive director and supported the teachers, families, and students of the Greenwood Community School Corporation by contributing more than $170,000 in grant money and aid. I have a vested interest in this board and the district, as a Greenwood graduate, as a spouse of a teacher, and parent of two Greenwood students. I would be grateful if you, too could give to this worthy and important foundation for Giving Tuesday this year!

Chrissy Sizemore

As an alumni of Greenwood and now a parent to my son Alex, who is a fifth grader at Westwood, I recognize the needs that are now being met as a result of the Greenwood Education Foundation. With the help of your donations, the Greenwood Education Foundation (GEF) has been able to help fill in the gaps that are left by the limitations of school funding.

I have the great honor of being the Executive Director of the GEF. I am blessed to be surrounded with people who want to enhance our children's educational experience and show appreciation to all our teachers and staff members.

The GEF has awarded grants to teachers in the amount of $157,000. Our goal is to impact student learning, promote student excellence, and create a path to a brighter future for all students. We can't do this without your support. 

Please help me reach my goal of $500 during this campaign! Thank you for helping support our community.

I am so honored to serve on the Greenwood Education Foundation and see first hand all the amazing things this organization does for our community, teachers, students, and staff. In the past six years the GEF has awarded over $170,000 in grants to Greenwood educators! Whether through new instruments, or growing and observing their own gardens, these grants make it possible for teachers to reach their students in unique and innovative ways.

Mark Havens

Being married to a teacher, having two children in the classroom, as well as being employed by the school corporation myself, I see firsthand the sacrifices teachers and students make everyday. As of our families have been impacted by Covid and everything that comes along with it, (remote/distance/e-learning) 2020 has shown how important individuals involved with education are. The Greenwood Education Foundation provides assistance to teachers' (and support staff) continued pursuit of ensuring our future leaders are well prepared for success outside of the classroom and to make their positive impact in our world. The financial assistance given by the Greenwood Education Foundation allows teachers to provide learning opportunities that normally would not be available to them, and most importantly, our kids are the beneficiaries of these new and wonderful opportunities. Please help me raise money for teachers and consider donating today.
