About the Group Futures Fund The GSACS Education Foundation Group Futures Fund Grant Program is designed to help fund unsupported school or classroom needs that demonstrate the enhancement of learning opportunities, evoke or promote passion and engagement in our students, support innovation within the classroom, promote faith, foster the development of relationships with one another and with God, and build community spirit and hope. These grants are supported through the fundraising activities of the foundation and its volunteers. Requests should be limited to $5,000 (or less) per submission. Consider joining our Foundation Board to see how we can work together to build better futures.
