Overview

The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro enjoys a rich history of collaborating with both people and organizations to improve the educational landscape. Assisting fundholders with their goal of creating a scholarship fund is our earliest model of impacting education. In addition to managing scholarship and education funds, the Community Foundation has invested significantly in organizations that positively impact education. These organizations include Degrees Matter, Guilford Education Alliance, and Say Yes to Education Guilford.
