Tribute Programs

Annual Education Tribute Program

Honor exemplary students, favorite educators, and appreciated community members who have made a difference in education in the town of Granby through a tax-deductible donation to the Granby Education Foundation.

Each honoree will receive a special gift card from the GEF, noting that a gift has been made in their name. Unless specified as anonymous, the sponsor's name will be listed as well. Sponsors can specify that their gift be directed toward either the Foundation's general fund or toward the GEF Arts Endowment.

In addition, both the sponsor and the honoree will be listed in a special listing in the Granby Drummer and in the Foundation's annual report and web site. Gifts of any size are welcome.

Nannie Brown Tribute Fund Established June 2011

When Nannie Brown announced her retirement from Valley Pre-School (VPS), her fellow teachers and the VPS board of directors chose to honor and thank her for all she’s done – for the school and for Granby – by establishing the Nannie Brown Tribute Fund through the Granby Education Foundation. 

The Nannie Brown Fund concentrates on the educational needs of children ages 2 - 5, with particular emphasis on outdoor learning experiences and family group activities.  Ideally, activities supported by the Fund would encourage joyful learning.

Cal Heminway Tribute Fund
The Cal Heminway Tribute Fund has been established by a grateful Granby family in honor of Cal’s many years of public service.  “Through the reliable stewardship of the GEF, we wish to support the creation of the Cal Heminway Tribute Fund to Promote Student Engagement in Public Service.  With an initial lead gift of $5000, we invite others to join us in developing an endowment to provide grants in support of student  engagement  with Granby’s public and community service organizations, so that our youth will forever be exposed to and learn from the example of others – like Cal – who give tirelessly and capably  to make Granby special.”
Donations to the fund are currently being accepted and will support the GEF’s Community Grant Program. 

The Cal Heminway Fund will support initiatives that promote, encourage and reward engagement in public service by the youth of Granby, contributing to their positive character and leadership development, and assuring that families in Granby will continue to benefit from its engaged and active volunteer community spirit.
