Ranked in the top 15 education foundations in the nation, Granite Education Foundation facilitates programs and donations that benefit over 68,000 students on a regular basis. Through its outreach and partnerships with local and national businesses, the Foundation provides a way for others to make a direct and meaningful impact for children and educators. There are over 160 languages and dialects spoken in the Granite School District. Over one half of the students live at or below the poverty line and the needs are multiplying. Due to the efforts of Granite Education Foundation, mobile and stationary food pantries have been implemented in schools to assist families who struggle with food insecurities. Basic needs such as shoes, coats, eyeglasses and school supplies are also provided to struggling students. Through donations, and the services and generosity of businesses, and individuals, the Foundation is providing resources that improve educational outcomes.
