Since its inception in late 2009, Great Schools in Wake (GSIW) has advocated tirelessly for excellence in public education. We have hosted forums and film series, created vast amounts of educational materials and engaged the community in meaningful dialogue about the issues affecting public education in Wake County schools.

GSIW is a project of Public Schools First NC (PSFNC), a statewide nonpartisan public education advocacy organization. Donations to GSIW are collected through our hosting organization (PSFNC). PSFNC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Your generous contribution will support us in our efforts to provide accurate information to educate the public about policy initiatives that impact the quality of education, to foster well-informed discussions about critical education issues, and to advocate for policies and funding that improve public education in the Wake County Public Schools System.
