Gala 2017

Thank you to all who supported the 2017 Grandview Heights Marble Cliff Education Foundation Gala! The Foundation truly appreciates you all- Sponsors, Volunteers, Attendees, Silent Auction Item Donors and Auction Winners, Fabulous Johnson Brothers Band, Foundation Board members (and spouses) and the helpful staff at the beautiful Hilton Columbus Downtown.  As always, the Gala was an evening of fun, fundraising, dinner and dancing and a wonderful fundraiser for the Education Foundation and the grants we can award to our schools and community. 

Couldn’t attend the 2017 Gala? We missed you! Since the Gala is our primary annual fundraiser, we hope you will still consider contributing towards our 2017 Gala proceeds. Make a secure online donation at any time during the year. Your support will help further the educational grants the Foundation can make to our community and schools. Thank you. Donate Now.

Welcome to the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation website!

Since its inception in 1991, the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation has strived to build an endowment to fund school and community projects. The Endowment is focused on awarding grants for programs that:

  • expand educational opportunities
  • promote school, family, business and community partnerships
  • encourage life-long learning


NEW! Now you can make a donation in honor of a special teacher, coach or staffmember. Once we receive your details, we will add the educator’s name here and we’ll send a letter to the educator letting them know they’ve been honored.
