Educational Foundation Established

An Educational Foundation has been established in order to support Grand Saline ISD.  The Foundation is a separately-incorporated 501(c) (3) foundation.  The mission of the Foundation is to create philanthropic support to enhance and complement the goals of Grand Saline ISD and its students by uniting businesses, the community, and its alumni groups.

An immediate goal is to provide scholarships to graduating seniors this year.  The Foundation wishes to unite all groups in raising funds to continue giving scholarships and in the future, we hope to develop an endowment fund that can also provide ongoing scholarships for GSHS graduates.

At this time, the Foundation is asking for Grand Saline alumni and friends to submit the following form so that we can send you the upcoming newsletter.  If you would like to contribute to the Foundation, donations can be sent to the Grand Saline Educational Foundation, P.
