The end of the school year is one of the best times to honor exemplary students, favorite educators, graduating seniors and 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! The GEF provides the community with an opportunity to acknowledge these special individuals through tax-deductible donations via the annual Tribute Program.
Each honoree will receive a personal letter from the GEF, noting 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 2017 issue of the Granby Drummer), on the foundation’s website and in its annual report. Gifts of any size will be welcomed.
The donations will fund 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. Please send your gift before August 1 to have your gift recognized in The Granby Drummer. For more information, please contact Deb Ranicar at email@example.com or visit the GEF at www.granbyeducationfoundation.org.
