Mission of the Education Foundation of Greenville
Founded in 1991, the Education Foundation of Greenville’s mission is to acquire and distribute financial, and other resources, to the Greenville Public Schools. These resources are to be used for programs and projects that enhance and/or supplement educational programs and provide extended educational opportunities to students in our community.
Events & Announcements
The Yellow Jacket Challenge scheduled for Sunday, April 15, has been cancelled. The safety of our runners and walkers is of utmost importance and must be first priority. Organizing this event is large undertaking and, therefore, we will not be able to reschedule. We will not issue refunds but paid participants and our school running clubs will still be able to get their shirts and race bags. There will be a plan for distribution announced next week. Please know that we are grateful for your continued support of the Education Foundation of Greenville and the wellness grants that are made possible through the Yellow Jacket Challenge. We are 11 years running and look forward to April, 2019.
The Education Foundation of Greenville (EFG), a not for profit 501c 3 organization, was founded in 1991 to generate and distribute financial resources for the Greenville Public Schools to enhance, or supplement, educational opportunities for students. It operates independently from the Greenville Public Schools, but trustees work closely in partnership with the Board of Education and administration to pursue its purpose of supporting excellence in the school districts programs.
