Glendora Education Foundation

The Foundation is a Working Group of Parents, Business, and Community Members Committed to Providing Vital Financial Support towards the enrichment of your child’s education

Glendora, the Pride of the Foothills, is known for its excellent schools. Chances are your decision to be a member of this community is related to its great school district and the positive and productive environment it offers for learning. GUSD works hard to improve our schools, but maintaining a high level of academic excellence in an environment of reduced state funding and lower student enrollment is a challenge.

GEF is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to maintain educational excellence in the Glendora Unified School District. This not only includes fundraising, but also facilitating community involvement and enhancing student learning. Glendora is a unique district in that not only has it had its budget drastically cut similar to other districts, but it doesn’t receive the same categorical funding as other districts. For example, only three schools in the GUSD qualify for Title I funds, which are for specialized programs that help underperforming disadvantaged students meet state academic content and performance standards.

Glendora’s high property values do have a direct correlation to the quality of our schools, so it is important to maintain our educational excellence for the benefit of all our community. This is why an educational foundation is so important to our schools: it is the vehicle by which our school families and community can provide additional funds and volunteers to facilitate educational excellence.
