Mission Statement

The Groton Dunstable Education Foundation, Inc. is a volunteer non-profit organization committed to enhancing the success of our public schools by providing private funding for innovative, inspiring programs and opportunities. This community-driven foundation believes that each child deserves an excellent educational experience, and that supported and successful schools are fundamental elements of our special communities.

The Groton Dunstable Education Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. There are neither salaries to pay nor building costs to bear. Every single volunteer is contributing his or her time out of a belief in our mission, goals, and objectives. We are committed to disbursing all profits directly to our children and schools through our grants process. Expenses incurred include the costs associated with events (e.g., food items, utensils, and other items which have not been donated), as well as General and Administrative expenses (e.g., insurance). We actively manage our costs in order to maximize our ability to directly and positively impact our public schools.
