Established in the early 2000s, the foundation, originally known as "The Foundation at Great Valley", was conceived by a group of passionate community members, including parents, educators, and business leaders. Recognizing the need for additional funding and resources to enhance educational opportunities for students, they aimed to create a strong partnership between the community and the school district. In 2019, the foundation was renamed to the "Great Valley School District Education Foundation" to reflect our direct support for the school district goals and initiatives.
