Scholarships

Through their growing San Diego Foundation Endowment Fund,  the Foundation has been instrumental in funding student scholarships.  However, in the past few years, the number of alumni and retirees who have donated to special scholarships has grown tremendously.   Most of the scholarship recipients are selected through a spring application process which is overseen by the Foundation.

    Dedicated to Our Students Past, Present and Future

    The Grossmont High School Educational Foundation is a tax-exempt, charitable foundation, the only fundraising organization supporting the entire campus, able to accept large donations and grants. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and 100% of the money raised by the Foundation stays at Grossmont.

    Grossmont High School is East County’s oldest school with more than 39,000 graduates, many of whom are active in our community. The GHS Educational Foundation works closely with the Alumni Association and the GHS Museum to honor the past while stepping confidently into a future of new challenges for public education.

    While Grossmont has worked diligently to continue our 102-year tradition of excellence, the funding gaps that get larger every year make it more challenging to meet the needs of our students, teachers, and staff.  California’s budget woes continue to threaten not just the “extras” but core programs and services for students – the same students we are counting on to continue their education, find good jobs and lead our country forward.

    Interested in Helping?

    Last year GHS recorded the highest number of AP tests ever taken in the school’s history. However, too many high-achieving students did not sign up for all the tests for which they were prepared. Why? Test fees.

    Each AP test fee is $97, so taking the test for every AP class may be out of reach for students with multiple AP classes.

    Help the GHS Educational Foundation raise funds for test scholarships by contributing to the Foundation’s General Fund.
