The Groton Dunstable Education Foundation (GDEF) is a local, non-profit, volunteer organization that supports all 5 District Schools with grants above and beyond the school budget, directly benefiting GDRSD students! Last year GDEF awarded over 21 grants to the district, awarding about $45,000 in many forms including manipulatives, special seating to help students cope with the changes from the pandemic, and professional development in diversity, equity, and inclusion.  

GDEF is now launching our Annual Giving Campaign for 2021-2022 and looking for support from the community to help us with our mission of helping every student reach for the stars.  To learn more about GDEF visit
