Building On The Foundation Of The Graham Community
The Graham Community Foundation is hoping to help build successful futures for several GHS students. The foundation originated in 2001 with representatives from each of the schools that consolidated to form Graham Local. These schools at Terre Haute, Westville, St. Paris, Concord, Rosewood, and Christiansburg Jackson, were simply the building blocks for our community of the Graham Local School District of today. The foundation’s purpose is to provide money in the form of grants or scholarships to several GHS seniors each year. We serve a variety of students by offering grants for continuing education in trades as well as scholarships for many levels of post secondary schooling including college.
Applications for high school seniors may be obtained in the guidance office and are due back March 27, 2020.
Members of the Graham community are encouraged to help our funds grow in support of our Graham students by sending checks, of any amount, to;
The Graham Foundation
C/O The Troy Community Foundation
216 W. Franklin St.
Troy, OH 45373
The business professionals at the Troy Community Foundation handle all of the donations and investments.
GHS Seniors in the Class of 2020, please be aware the Graham Community Foundation could be the support you need to start building your future!

The program provides a wealth of information for those considering STEM careers.
