The Goochland County Public Schools (GCPS) partnered with the Goochland Education Foundation (GEF) to participate in the Amazing Raise campaign this year. School community members were called upon to contribute to the campaign, specifically seeking to have at least 50 individuals willing to wake up at 6:00 AM and contribute at least $50.

Not only did the Foundation recruit the minimum number of participants, but so many people contributed so quickly that GCPS was awarded the Early Bird Prize, doubling the amount contributed

“We are so thankful for the efforts of our school community,” remarked superintendent Dr. James Lane. “It’s humbling to know so many were willing to wake up early and selflessly give of their time and resources.”

All total, the GEF raised $5,500 that will go to support the inspirational work happening in Goochland’s classrooms directly.
