About Us » History


In 1996 a group of private citizens, working closely with the Greeneville City Board of Education and the Greeneville City School System administration, established the Greeneville City Schools Foundation as a 501(c)(3) organization. Over twenty members of the Greeneville community sit on the Board of Trustees, serving to guide the course of the organization.

The Greeneville City Schools (GCS) Education Foundation, an independent, non-profit organization, advocates for a strong system of public education and seeks to enhance educational opportunities for all students by serving as a clearinghouse for ideas, and a conduit for public support, which includes financial giving, volunteering, and celebrating teachers and students.

Greeneville City Schools Education Foundation celebrated 20 years of going "beyond the basics" for GCS in 2016.  Read the commemorative article provided  by the Greeneville Sun!
