Garinger High School, Charlotte North Carolina


The Garinger Education Foundation was incorporated in February 2014 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization to provide resources to improve the educational environment at Garinger High School.


Our Foundation is the successor to a scholarship effort begun by the Class of 1963 during their 50th reunion. With their help the Foundation awarded fifteen $2000 scholarships in May 2014 to Garinger graduates. Each of the scholarships was a memorial scholarship in the name of each of the 15 Garinger classmates lost in the Vietnam war. The Foundation has also funded a Vietnam memorial on the Garinger campus to those lost classmates with a dedication date of August 8, 2014.

Our Goal

The primary goal of the Garinger Education Foundation is to provide opportunities for post-secondary education for the graduates of Garinger High School.
