Greenville Schools Foundation

What is the Greenville Schools Foundation Fund?
    The Greenville Schools Foundation is a special fund, separate from public funds or other scholarship funds, used to support programs which assist and encourage the achievement of the highest standards of education of the young people within the Greenville school district.
