    Preserving our History

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 33,000 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 92-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.

Pass The Cap

Hey foothiller families! Next week is homecoming, and with that, is pass the cap! We need volunteers to come out before first and second period dropoff and collect money! It's super fun and really easy. Please contact Jamie Nelson by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 619-760-6626 if you can help. 

Also, everyone can bring cash, or checks made out to GHSEF or just give whatever change you have in your ashtray! Every little bit helps! Thank you and go foothillers!
