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.
