The GREA Foundation was established in 1996 by the Georgia Retired Educators Association (GREA) to provide outreach programs to the community, to support continuing education and life-long learning, and to enhance and foster volunteerism.
Past projects of the GRE Foundation have included:
- Professional development
- Leadership training for volunteers
- Retirement planning
- Information dissemination
- Projects to improve communities
but at the present time the project of the GRE Foundation is scholarships for active teachers.
