From Variety Shows to the Yellow Jacket Challenge, each year the Education Foundation of Greenville (EFG) holds fundraisers to supports its mission of preparing our students for life and the 21st century workplace. We are proud of the community support at each of these events.
OUR3 Variety Show
Don’t Stop the Music – OUR3 Variety Show
Since 2012, Greenville Public Schools music educators have created a concert that involves more than 120 local talent, alumni, school staff, and students with the sole purpose to raise funds for the EFG’s Performing Arts OUR3 Endowment Fund. Each year the theme focuses on different styles of music and genres with a variety of acts. Participants understand the benefits of the performing arts for all students and this is a way for them to give back to a cause they so strongly believe in.
This past year, the Variety Show and Collage Concert raised over $5,000.
Celebrate Our Future Dinner
The Fall Festival Dinner & Fundraiser "Celebrate Our Future” started nine years ago. To date this fundraiser dinner has raised over $61,000. This fun evening features a wonderful meal along with a silent auction.
Thank to everyone who attended this year’s dinner - we appreciate your support!
