Vision: GAF: Providing a Bridge to our Future by Enriching the Classroom
We are enriching the educational experience of our children by providing a bridge to meet the common objectives between the District 304 Administrators, Educational Staff, Teachers, Students, Parents, Community, and the Businesses of Geneva through our dedication to service, leadership, and entrepreneurial spirit. Mission: Geneva Academic Foundation (GAF) strives to provide students at all grade levels new experiences, ideas, and challenges by funding grants for technology, services, programs and equipment for teachers. The grants are based upon teacher requests for their classrooms. These supplemental educational resources provide benefits to students at each school in Geneva. The Geneva Academic Foundation is an independent, 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization led by a volunteer board. We are dedicated to enriching the educational experience of our children through the advancement of relationships, partnerships, membership and stewardship. We seek sources of private funding to support this mission. To reach our Mission, We Value: Relationships … with the Parents, Community, Businesses, District Administration, Educational Staff, School Board, Alumni, Teachers, Students Partnerships … with the District 304 and other similar organizations Membership … individuals donating time, talent, or resources to our mission Stewardship … ownership of our mission
Since 1987, the role of the GAF in Geneva has been to provide an ongoing bridge for all students across all schools in the district. We provide larger funding to projects aligned with district 304 and not funded by tax dollars versus the PTOs and Booster clubs aligned to individual schools.
