Programs and Services
The Girard School District Foundation raises funds to directly support the students and teachers of the District. Our donors allow teachers to enhance the educational experience in their classrooms by providing the funds needed for special projects, activities and field trips. These teacher grants are awarded semi-annually and have, for example, supported STEM enhancements like trips to the Carnegie Science Center; helped purchase the new EV3 Mindstorm System for two First Lego League robotics teams; and provided funding for the launching of a space balloon, just to name a few. The Foundation also awards scholarships to graduating seniors who are pursuing a post-secondary education. 72 scholarships have been awarded thus far!
