The Gower Foundation for Excellence in Education
About The Gower Foundation
The Gower Foundation is a non-profit, independent, tax-exempt corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. It is qualified by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) organization to receive tax-deductible donations. The Foundation seeks funds from private, business, and corporate sources to support unique learning experiences for students and teachers so that all Gower students are at their best!
The Goals of the Gower Foundation include:
Student Development: The Foundation will provide students and teachers with the resources for supplemental educational and enrichment activities that build upon the District’s curriculum beyond what is typically financed with tax dollars.
Staff Excellence: The Foundation will provide resources to support innovation and creativity among Gower educators through support of high quality staff development.
School/Community Collaboration: The Foundation will serve as a bridge between area residents, businesses, and District alumni to identify and channel resources to the service of Gower students.

2019 - 2020 Parent Speaker Series
The Foundation's goal is to bring to you experts on topics that are relevant and important to us, as parents, as we think about raising children who are prepared for the 21st Century. Visit our Speaker Series tab for more info on this year's lineup.
Stay tuned for upcoming offerings soon!
The Gower Foundation is also excited to be considering future projects that provide enrichment opportunities for students. These may include an after school Orchestra program, an after school Spanish language lab for elementary students, co-sponsoring after school STEAM coding programs, and many others. We always welcome ideas from parents and students.
