About Us

The Groton Education Foundation was established in 1997 to help local schools and nonprofits provide extraordinary educational programs and initiatives for residents of our community.

We are a 501(c)(3) incorporated in Connecticut and managed entirely by volunteers who want

​to strengthen local educational opportunities.

The GEF is independent of all public and other private organizations. And since volunteers do all the Foundation's work, donations translate directly into grants for learning initiatives.


Third-graders made this quilt with seniors at Thrive 55/the Town of Groton Senior Center. Their intergenerational project was funded by the GEF. The kids and seniors also played card games, wrote poems and painted together.
