Germantown Education Foundation grants support academic programs, teaching, technology, and learning initiatives for students, teachers, and schools in the Germantown Municipal School District.

Through grants, projects and initiatives, the Germantown Education Foundation helps advance the academic achievement of students by improving the quality of teaching and learning in our six municipal schools and one online academy (GOAL).
