Support the Grinnell Newburg School Foundation

From the pandemic to the derecho, last year was surely one of the most difficult years our teachers, staff, students and parents have ever experienced. Yet, the Grinnell Newburg School Foundation–backed by its strong core of supporters–jumped into action to live our mission of promoting excellence in the Grinnell-Newburg public schools.

With community support from donors like you, GNSF accomplished the following:

We Kept Kids Learning…
We helped distribute over sixty wi-fi hot spots. Students without reliable internet coverage didn’t fall behind as the first wave of the pandemic necessitated virtual learning;

We Helped Students Return to School Safely…
From purchasing air purifiers to a water bottle fill station, GNSF responded to the needs of schools and helped to keep our children safe as they returned to in-person learning last fall.

We Gave Students a Voice…
GNSF re-structured its Board to add student members. We offered two students a seat at the table, and they responded with a project that showcased their remarkable talent.

We Funded First-Time Educators…
In addition to our ongoing teacher reimbursement funds, we created a fund specifically for first-time teachers. They haven’t received their first paycheck yet, so we helped them purchase classroom supplies.

We Leveled the Playing Field…
All students should have access to educational opportunities. We removed barriers to education by granting funds for the purchase of digital cameras for photography classrooms.and we will continue to do so with the newly established STRIPES fund that will help students in all areas from academic to athletics and fine arts eliminate the monetary barriers of involvement.
