The Grady Foundation
The Grady Foundation supports the Grady community by improving classrooms for students and teachers and preparing students for the future. The Foundation, which was founded in 1997, is run by Grady parents, alumni and faculty.
One of the main goals of the Grady Foundation is providing students and teachers with the resources they need. They have bought more than five hundred Chromebooks as part of their initiative to provide one computer for each student. In addition to technology, the Foundation also sponsors other opportunities such as additional teacher training outside of that offered by Atlanta Public Schools.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grady Foundation has been using donations to improve instruction during the virtual learning period. Earlier this year, they purchased equipment like document cameras, headsets and digital pens so that teachers can be more effective when teaching students over Zoom. The Foundation also provides teachers with tools such as virtual labs for science programs and educational foreign-language software.
Donations to the Grady Foundation, which can be made via check or through their website, will go towards empowering the Grady community during this tough time by continuing to provide resources for virtual classrooms.
