For the past 20 years members of the Gresham Barlow Education Foundation have worked tirelessly to provide funds (20 years=3.9 million) for a multitude of extra services, enhanced curriculum, and special equipment for the students of the district. In addition, during this time they have been working on building an endowment fund of $1 million dollars that would provide perpetual funding for scholarships and grants for the district.
Recently, in light of that goal, the President of the Foundation, Vince Patrick, on behalf of he and his wife Lindsay have pledged a matching grant of $20,000 to the Foundation to get that fund to a million dollars. As a local Mortgage Broker and graduate of Barlow High School he understands how important a quality education is to our community. So, how can we all help obtain this gracious offer to benefit our community’s kids?
