GHFEDS is excited to announce the creation of a new grant intended to assist Special Education teachers and administrators with providing outstanding educational opportunities to children with special needs. As part of the inaugural presentation of funding to special educators in 2013 - 2014, GHFEDS created and presented two new education grants to special education teachers in our surrounding area. These grants, the Annalee Haas and Anna Dague Special Education Grants, will again be awarded for the 2014 - 2015. In addition, GHFEDS has committed an additional $2000 to distribute in honor of World Down Syndrome Day to special education teachers in our service area.

Gene's Day

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated each year on March 21st (3/21) to celebrate individuals with Trisomy 21, better known as Down syndrome. To help celebrate this important day, GHFEDS invites local school districts and places of business to participate in our first annual Gene's Day Fundraiser.  This event is a fun way to celebrate Down syndrome while raising money to fund the GHFEDS Education Grant, with 100% of the funds raised to be awarded to special educators in 2016.
