Scramble for Students

Past GBEF Scramblers,
Thank you for your past sponsorship of the GBEF’s annual Scramble For Students.  Our 2021 tournament proved very successful as we continued the format of two tee times.  With your help, so far this year we have provided $19,500 to the school  district to purchase books and e-books to update and augment the K-8 school libraries.

We were happy to support literacy in the schools and to help ensure that all students have access to a variety of reading materials. We were also able to contribute almost $5,000 to support the purchase of Interactive Flat Panel TVs for Kelly Creek Grade School, and helped fund additional STEM resources for the mobile technology classroom, The Tomorrow Bus.

As the pandemic continues to affect fundraising events, the Scramble For Students has become our only fundraiser, and is more important than ever for our on-going support of the Gresham-Barlow teachers and students. With your contribution as a sponsor, we will be able to continue to provide resources for the students in the Gresham-Barlow School District.

Won’t you mark your calendars now and commit to joining us for this year’s Scramble For Students?

Our Mission – Bringing GREAT Things to the Classroom

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation is dedicated to supporting every student in the Gresham-Barlow School District. We partner with our community to provide funding to foster innovative and engaging learning experiences and provide opportunities to ensure that every student has what they need to experience a world-competitive education.

25 years of Bringing GREAT Things to the Classroom

When our district educators dream of ideas to increase student achievement, they often find themselves without the resources to make their dreams a reality. The GBEF provides a way to fund projects, initiatives, technology and creative ideas that fall outside the scope of the district's operating budget. The GBEF provides the funding to make dreams come true.
