GPD Group established a 501(c)(3) medium named the “GPD Group Employees’ Foundation, Inc.” to aid in channeling donations that will enrich the K-12 public education experience and support at-risk children and those with medical and special needs. By focusing their efforts on improving the lives of children, they are developing a long-term commitment to investing in communities in which they serve.
- Public School Districts: Children and teachers in kindergarten through 12th grade, particularly those children with special needs, have benefited from being awarded money by the Foundation. Grants to provide simple things to individual teachers in individual classrooms such as books, alphabet charts, games, or supplies; educational field trips for a particular grade level in a particular school building, musical instruments, computers / laptops, or gym equipment for use by an entire school building, or money to benefit certain groups of children throughout an entire district such as special communication devices for autistic kids or the implementation of a STEM program; are all worthwhile causes and worthy of consideration for grants by the Foundation. No request should be thought of as too unique, too unusual, too small, or too large; as long as the overriding purpose and goal is to help children develop and learn.
- Non-profit Organizations: Outside of a formal school structure, children and especially those with special needs, rely on grants to assist them in a variety of ways, so who pays for providing a tutor for your child if he or she ends up with an extended stay at a local children’s hospital? The Foundation can award the hospital a grant for that cause. How about the funding for a local organization who buys, raises, trains, and then provides service dogs to blind or deaf children, or to those with another impairment? The Foundation can assist with that. Or even groups such as the Boys and Girls Club, Camp Invention, Special Olympics, and others; the Foundation can provide some funding to these types of organizations and their affiliated programs. The possibilities are endless – while the children’s needs are great!
The Foundation encourages smaller grant requests at $2,000 or under.
To be eligible for the grants, your organization must be registered as a section 501(c)(3) entity or public school system located in select communities throughout Northeast or Central Ohio. Their grants are focused on schools and non-profits that target K-12 public education and at-risk children or those with special and medical needs.
