Greenfield-Central School Foundation

Ginny Brown of the Greenfield-Central School Foundation spoke to Kiwanis about the Foundation and it's programs.   The Foundation was started in 1988 as the Set A Good Example Foundation.  It became Greenfield-Central School Foundation in 2012.   The Foundation became GCSF after recognizing both the need and the opportunity to provide stronger financial support to the school corporation as a whole.

The programs include Enrichment Grants which fund programs like "Girls on the Run", an intermediate school program that helps to empower young women. 

Other programs include

Some of the grants funds programs such as:
  • Archeology Club
  • Vex Robotics
  • Purchasing books for a classroom library
  • Project Arrow, where High School mentors help Junior High students.  Participation in this program increase the likelihood of  participants graduating by 70 percent.
  • STEM nights
  • Literacy Nights
  • Kindergarten 101 for students who did not attend pre-school before Kindergarten.
The major fund-raising event is the Red Letter Gala.   For more information on donating or about the Foundation or it's programs see
