Who is GAF?

The Geneva Academic Foundation (GAF) has a board of directors made up of people in the community who care passionately about Geneva schools. However, the bulk of GAF is made up of local residents and businesses in the community who support GAF by their annual donations and by participating in the various fundraisers throughout the year.
    




What does GAF do?

Each year, GAF provides grants to pay for supplemental programs, equipment, and educational resources to benefit the students at each school in Geneva. The programs funded are based upon requests by teachers. Some of the items funded in past years include:

  • Interactive 'Smart' Board
  • Portable Document Cameras
  • Microscopes
  • CD Listening Library
  • Visiting Jazz Violinist
  • Starlab
GAF is also committed to the long-term success of our schools. Each year, a portion of the funds collected are allocated to an Endowment Fund that will continue enhancing educational opportunities for our growing school population well into the future.


How is GAF funded?

GAF relies on the support of parents, friends, and businesses for funding. GAF has an annual membership drive and several fundraisers throughout the year. Some of our past fundraisers have included:

  • 'A Night At The Little Traveler' Private Dining & Shopping Event
  • Mighty Vike Homecoming Hustle Fun Run!
  • GAF Geneva Idol Karaoke!
  • 'Bowl Us Over' Bowling & Silent Auction
  • Dancing with the Geneva Stars (in partnership with the Geneva Cultural Arts Commission).
  • Viva Geneva 5K Run.
  • Mighty Viking Boat Race.

These are fun events for the whole community. Please support GAF and Geneva schools by becoming a donor and participating in one of our fundraisers.
