Grandparents for Education is a 501c3 nonprofit organization devoted to enhance cross-generational partnership through active involvement in schools leading toward student’s success and safety. Our program is to provide volunteers in schools to give students access to caring, supportive, actual and honorary grandparents. It provides opportunities for these volunteers to engage in meaningful reading and math activities in a school setting. Volunteers bring experience, knowledge and serve as role models as well as bringing another facet of the community to support education. Because of COVID-19, we have lost all our fundraising ability which is how we continue to survive. We desperately need help in raising funds to continue our work with those students who need help. If you would like to help Grandparents for Education, please consider making a tax-deductible donation.
"Grandparents for Education is a vital resource for our school district. The volunteers provide invaluable assistance for our teachers and staff. Our students are better because of the dedication from our Grandparents for Education." - Jeff Elstad, Superintendent, Owatonna Public Schools
