Fund A Need
Every year, Gahanna-Jefferson Education Foundation partners with the district to provide funding for specific equipment needs. While the bulk of the money raised takes place during our the annual Gahanna Gala, donations are accepted all year!
In recent years our Fund A Need has assisted the district with purchasing iPads and Chromebook laptops for students in every building throughout the district. Other purchases have included the purchase of Smartboards for all schools and 3D Printers for each of the middle schools and Gahanna Lincoln High School.
In 2020, the Fund A Need program was the high school Robotics program which follows the support for coding and robotics at the younger levels. In 2019, The Foundation was able to provide equipment for Makerspaces in all three of the middle school media centers and purchase items for the Middle School Robotics Competition Team. In 2018, GJEF provided Spheros to the elementary schools to teach beginning coding.
