GEF is a community foundation in Gorham, ME, founded in 2006. We are a 50 I (c)(3) non-profit committed to excellence in the Gorham public school system.


Our Mission

The Gorham Educational Foundation is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in the Gorham public schools through supporting programs that encourage a thirst for

knowledge, respect for the community, and responsible citizenship. Our core goals are to enrich learning, promote ethics and leadership, and to support excellence in teaching.


GEF provides funding and support for education through grants to teachers in the Gorham school system, for projects that align with the organization's mission, and which would not otherwise be available to children through public funding.
