The end of the school year is one of the best times to honor exemplary students, favorite educators, and appreciated community members who have made a difference in education in the town of Granby. A tax-deductible contribution to the Granby Education Foundation (GEF) is the perfect way to recognize that person! As in years past, the GEF invites members of the community to acknowledge these special individuals through donations to the GEF via the Tribute Program.
Each honoree will receive a personal letter from the GEF, informing them that a gift has been made in their name. For gifts of $100 or more, a certificate suitable for presentation and display will also be provided. Unless specified as an anonymous gift, the donor’s name will be listed as well.
In addition, both the donor and honoree will be listed in upcoming articles (the September issue of the Granby Drummer), on the foundation’s website, and in the foundation’s annual report. Gifts of any size will be welcomed.
The donation will go toward the funding of innovative educational programs to benefit area residents. Donors can specify that their gift be put toward either the foundation’s general fund or toward the GEF Arts Endowment.
Contributions may be sent to: The Granby Education Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 351, Granby, CT 06035. Please include the honoree’s name with your contribution. Send your gift before August 1, to have your gift recognized in The Granby Drummer. For more information, call Deb Ranicar at 860-653-5825 or visit our website at www.granbyeducationfoundation.org.
