Business Partnership Program

The success of GEF depends on the strength of its partnerships – with our schools, our community and our business leaders. The GEF Business Partnership Program is a dynamic group of local companies and professionals who, through their financial support, share in our success. Partnering with GEF is a great way to support our schools and promote your business. Outstanding schools help strengthen the entire community, including the business community.

As a GEF Business Partner, you’ll receive recognition on many levels:

  • All donations of $100 or more are listed on the GEF Business Network Directory on our website, complete with a link to your site.
  • Based on your donation amount, you’ll receive donor recognition at GEF events.
  • In addition, you’ll get a window decal to let the community know of your support.

Whether your business gives $100 or $100,000, there is a place for you in the Business Partnership Program. Partners gain the satisfaction of knowing they’ve done their part in contributing to the success of our outstanding schools. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, your donations are also tax deductible.


“As the local newspaper, we understand what community is all about. As a mom who has overseen four sons through the Glendale schools, I know the importance of giving our kids every opportunity in the classroom. And as a local business owner, I believe in supporting those things that enrich our community and our schools. The Glendale Educational Foundation raises funds to create the best environment for our kids – and that’s an investment that guarantees dividends.”
– Robin Goldsworthy, Publisher, Crescenta Valley Weekly

“The GEF’s Business Partnership provides students with unique opportunities to apply their instruction to real world experiences – adding value to both.”
– Dr. Richard Sheehan, Superintendent of Schools

“Selling real estate in Glendale includes selling schools. Quality education is critical and partnering with the Glendale Educational Foundation helps to achieve that higher level of quality. Continued Federal and State funding reductions directly affect our schools, and GEF helps fill the gap by providing much needed programs otherwise cut.”
– Dan Lanning, Exec. VP, Glendale Assn. of REALTORS®
