Greenville Learning Opportunities Endowment
The Greenville Learning Opportunities Endowment (GLOE) supports special learning opportunities for Greenville’s students and teachers.
The endowment encourages active learning in the broadest sense. Examples for uses of the fund could range from purchasing equipment or software for an oral history, photographic, documentary, or research project; to taking a class on a field trip; to attending a seminar or conference to explore new teaching techniques.
GLOE is administered through the Maine Community Foundation (www.mainecf.org), an organization that specializes in overseeing nonprofit endowments. The endowment provides an ongoing source of support, since principal remains intact and the interest generated by the fund is used for grants. A committee decides how the money will be spent, based on the merits of proposals submitted to the committee.
In initially establishing the endowment, the Greenville High School Class of 1967 was inspired by the career of class member Howard (Howie) Ryder (1949-2006). Ryder believed in the power of learning to transform the lives of individuals and their communities, and he assumed numerous leadership roles to improve secondary education in Maine.
