GIPS Foundation will focus on Emergency Fund; Suspends Round 1 Classroom Grants
The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation Board voted to suspend Round 1 of the annual Classroom Grant Program at their regular board meeting on Wednesday, April 15. Board Chair, Kirk Ramsey relayed that “the GIPS family needs us more than ever to focus resources on the current emergencies related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Foundation is responding to this new reality. We hope to resume the classroom grant program when school resumes in buildings.”
The GIPS Foundation Board opened an Emergency Fund last month and is issuing grants from that fund to help GIPS students, staff, and families. The fund is open for the public to contribute to on our website at https://gipsfoundation.org/how-to-help/emergency-fund.html and also by mailing a contribution to GIPS Foundation Emergency Fund, PO Box 4904, Grand Island, NE 68802.
