About Us

The Geary Community Schools Foundation is a non-profit, charitable, tax exempt fund supported by private individuals, businesses and other organizations. It is an organization of committed citizens separate from the public school district serving Junction City, Fort Riley, Grandview Plaza, and Milford. The foundation offers special programs and funds to enhance the learning environment, increase the effectiveness of instruction and to help strengthen and expand ties between the schools and community.  USD 475 is committed to providing  the best possible education for all students. There are always extras that can enhance the quality and scope of education for students. We must seek every advantage to maximize opportunities for our youth.  Your contribution to the Geary Community Schools Foundation can provide that advantage.

Mission: Our mission is to enhance the quality of education in USD 475 public schools; to enlarge the resources available to this school system and to structure a partnership between the schools, and the parents, businesses, and community toward achieving educational excellence. 

As part of this mission, activities of the trustees of this Foundation will include:

  • Awarding grants to educators to expand and enrich educational opportunities for students
  • Administering Scholarships (Both Students and Teachers)
  • Receiving monetary gifts which will benefit learning opportunities
  • Involving community members in school improvement
