HOW WE HELP

Annual Total Income

GEF raises funds to sustain vital programs in Geyserville public schools. Since 1989, GEF has shown a steady increase in support by parents, extended family of students, community members and local businesses. And, thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we raised more than $30,000 during the 2012-2013 fiscal year. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation, all gifts made to GEF are acknowledged to the donor and are completely tax deductible.

Income Sources

We raise the majority of our incoming funds through:
Celebrate Geyserville Dinner and Auction
Fall Fiesta and Silent Auction
Partners in Business

Winter Program Spaghetti Feed
eScrip Program

Trione BooFest

Asti Tour De Vine

GEF handles all gifts with care, tracking them from our treasury through the Geyserville Unified School District receipt and expense processes assuring that the funds are disbursed per the request of the donor.

GEF also manages funds for academic and vocational scholarships granted to Geyserville High School graduating seniors. Interest income and any principal added to these funds is noted as income to GEF, and disbursements to scholarship recipients are noted as an expense to GEF.

Outgoing Funds

The majority of GEF spending is in disbursement of incoming donor gifts and scholarships with annual administration fees kept to a minimum by our volunteers. Areas of funding vary from year to year depending upon donor restrictions and school requests. Administration fees include the services of our Certified Public Accountant, insurance for our board, telephone mailing services.
