"Enhancing our community through the enrichment of our youth."
The Griffin School Foundation was established in 1999 to enhance the educational experience of the students, teachers, staff and community of the Griffin School District by funding those needs that are not or cannot be supported by traditional funding sources of the Griffin School District.
The Griffin School Foundation's purpose is fulfilled by:
- Funding Grants that support improvement of public education
- Funding scholarships for Griffin School students and former Griffin students
- Funding educational and training opportunities for Griffin School employees and Griffin School Board members
- Funding capital improvements and equipment for the Griffin School District and Griffin-area youth
- Providing historical and other displays at Griffin School
- Addressing the special needs of Griffin students
- Hosting events honoring our Griffin community senior citizens
