Message from the President

and Executive Director

Dear Friends,

This year, our 10th anniversary, marks a significant milestone for The Green Dragon

Foundation. In 2008, a group of visionaries came together to identify the Lewisburg Area

School District’s unmet needs, and form a nonprofit foundation to identify solutions. Their

dedication and generosity formed a solid underpinning for the formation of The Green

Dragon Foundation; today the organization is a leading fundraising arm of the Lewisburg

Area School District. Thousands of students have and will continue to benefit from efforts

they initiated.

As we look back, it’s significant to realize this organization has achieved many of its

short- and long-term goals and aspirations. Some highlights include:

• Raised more than $4 million.

• Launched a comprehensive campaign, VISION 2020: Our Children-Our Future

• Established 18 permanently endowed and 4 quasi-endowed funds with a current

balance of $827,605.

• Provided nearly $1.3 million in financial and in-kind support with an additional $300,000

promised to the district in the coming years.

• Helped establish and annually co-host LAHS Alumni Weekend.

Annually host the Brandon Kramm Memorial Golf Tournament and “Field of Dreams”

Benefit Auction.

• Raised $400,000 needed to create the Brandon S. Kramm Memorial Baseball Field.

As you read the 2017-2018 Annual Report and Honor Roll of Donors, please think about

how much you, as a donor or volunteer, have helped this organization achieve its vision

and mission to provide current and future Lewisburg students with an exceptional

educational experience.

We also hope it inspires you to continue your support of Lewisburg students, through the


On behalf of our entire organization, we would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt

thank-you to YOU; our donors, sponsors and local advocates. We are tremendously

grateful for your generous participation and ongoing support.

About Us

A Review of 2017-2018 Successes

Thanks to loyal and dedicated donors and volunteers,

the hard work of the The Green Dragon Foundation’s

Board of Directors, Lewisburg Area School District

leadership, faculty and staff, The Green Dragon

Foundation exceeded its campaign goal of $2.5 million.

Through June 2018, the campaign has raised

$3,037,422; the campaign concludes this September.

Your gifts, and your willingness to invest in Lewisburg

students, faculty and programs every year, make a

difference in every student’s life every day. Thanks to

you, our very generous donors, contribution revenue

totaled $538,601 in 2017.

This additional revenue creates wonderful opportunities

for Lewisburg students. Endowments provide

even greater long-term programmatic support of our

students; major gifts underwrite capital projects at the

high school; and increasing annual support enhances a

variety of programs throughout the district.

A Plan for 2018-2019 and Beyond

Although the foundation has already exceeded its

overall campaign goal of $2.5 million, the organization

will continue to raise much-needed funds to support

“The Green Dragon Foundation is a communitybased

nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated

to providing and directing funding for the

realization of educational, cultural and athletic

programs, and capital improvement projects, for

the enrichment and enhancement of the students

of the Lewisburg Area School District.”

LASD. GDF will continue soliciting gift commitments

for capital improvements and multi-year support

of programs, long-term investment through

endowments and planned giving opportunities for

future support. There is still so much to do!

In its first year of operations, GDF raised $212,525; in

2017, annual revenue totaled $583,052. Today, the

charitable organization is governed by a 25-member

board of directors, led by executive director Ann Glock,

and staffed with administrative assistant Tushaar

Khurana. In 2017, GDF benefited from the work of 92

volunteers who provided 938 hours of service.

We invite you to join our team!

email at: to learn

about volunteer opportunities.

Please consider becoming a financial supporter to

make a positive difference for our current and

future students!

Gifts to LASD

Through the generosity of parents, alumni, businesses and friends, GDF supports LASD students, faculty and

programs in a variety of ways. In 2017, the foundation provided a total of $446,179 to benefit Lewisburg area

students. GDF donated $237,546 ($236,146 financial and $1,400 in-kind) to the district and endowed an additional

Why I Serve

Jennifer K. Shabahang

I firmly believe that

education is the key to a

strong community.

From my previous work in

international development,

I am keenly aware of the

interconnectedness of

health, education and

economic stability. This is

true in the developing

world as well as in rural

central Pennsylvania. When my husband and I moved

our family to Lewisburg in 2010 we were attracted by

the solid public school system and the quaint,

welcoming feel of the college town. Now I can say

that we are true Green Dragons and are proud of

what our small town has to offer.

I have been involved with The Green Dragon

Foundation for the past seven years. As a volunteer, I

began by writing articles for the Annual Report. This

work entailed visiting the schools to see how the

programs funded by GDF impacted students. From

science kits to a lending library of band instruments, I

was impressed to see the variety of programs that

enhance the education of students throughout the

district. I was honored to become a GDF Board

Member in 2013. This new role enabled me to truly

become an advocate for GDF and get involved in the

decision making process of how GDF funds are used. I

have witnessed an amazing partnership between the

foundation and the school district, working together

to create and fund programs that benefit all students.

As GDF prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary, I

am thankful to the group of visionaries who saw the

“unique community, unique opportunity” that we

have here in Lewisburg to support the education of

our children. The community has embraced the vision

of GDF. The Vision 2020: Our Children, Our Future

Campaign has raised over $3 million. What I am most

excited about are the 18 permanently endowed

funds and the four quasi-endowed funds

currently valued at $827,605. These endowments

will provide funding for years to come in areas such as

environmental science, professional development

and performing arts, just to name a few.

As I reflect on my service, it is a pleasure to see

students such as kindergarteners at the annual Grill

Out held each August. As vice president of GDF it is

very satisfying for me to know that these newest

members of our school district will benefit from the

generosity of our community. Thank-you to everyone

who continues to support The Green Dragon

Foundation as we move into our next decade.

VISION 2020: Our Children–Our Future Campaign

In September 2018, The Green Dragon Foundation will complete an ambitious multi-year comprehensive

campaign, VISION 2020: Our Children-Our Future. The foundation aspired to raise $2.5 million to broaden and

enhance its support of strategic academic programs and facility enhancements within the Lewisburg Area School

District. The foundation raised funds through gift commitments for capital improvements, long-term investment

through endowment, and multi-year support of academic, athletic, cultural, and educational programs. The

foundation was excited to present donors with a variety of naming opportunities within the new high school, as

well as with programmatic endowments.

Through June 2018, the

foundation has raised $3,037,422

toward its goal of $2.5 million.

This represents 121%!

Through the campaign, the foundation has provided

funding for exciting projects at the new high school.

Since last year, we are proud to add the following

newly named spaces, some of which are not even

constructed yet (listed alphabetically):

• The Aaron & Grace Byrd Batting Cages

• The Habig Family Flag Pole Plaza

• The Brandon S. Kramm Memorial Baseball Field

• The Markunas Family Courtyard

• The Reish Family Classroom

The Green Dragon Foundation | Annual Report 2017-2018

Why I Give

Carolyn Garisto

In January 2005, my family moved to Lewisburg and

enrolled our children at St. Monica’s in Sunbury. We

struggled to settle in and make friends here in town

because our kids were not “in the mix.” That fall, we

enrolled the children in the Lewisburg Area School

District—Katie in 1st and Nick in 3rd grade.

Through the school, we became involved in the

community. The kids felt included and I volunteered

regularly. Actually, through the years, I have cleaned up

milk spills in the cafeteria at Kelly, donned the dragon

costume at Linntown, coordinated middle school book

fairs and chaperoned countless buses on Friday nights

for the high school marching band. And, just like my

children, some of my most treasured relationships

began in the halls of those buildings.

In August 2012, my husband Bruno died very

suddenly and unexpectedly. The amount of support

we received from this community was astounding. It

was like the town dropped everything to comfort us.

At home, cards, food, visits and calls were constant for

months. At school, my kids were loved and supported

by each staff member. Some of them went beyond the

walls of the buildings and reached out personally to

help. How many kids can say their favorite principal sat

in their bedroom and promised them they would

survive this pain? It was, and still is, just mind

boggling to grasp the overwhelming amount of

love and support we felt from the school and

community in those early tragic days.

In 2013, with Nick and Katie both in high school, we

discussed small ways to give back. Through our annual

donations to The Green Dragon Foundation, we

supported the fall play and spring musical, because

Bruno loved both. At one of GDF’s gift presentations to

the LASD School Board, I commented, “Even if we gave

every day, we would still not repay the kindness shown

to us in our time of need.”

During their high school careers, Nick and Katie were

involved in the fall plays, spring musicals, concert and

jazz bands, orchestra, choirs and their absolute

favorite—Marching Band. My kids spent so much time

in the band room and on stage at the former high

school building.

When I met with Ann Glock and Jennifer Shabahang

about possibly contributing to the campaign for the

new high school, it made sense to earmark our

donation for the music department—that was Nick

and Katie’s safe haven, their comfort, their home.

For my family, Lewisburg will always be home. For my

children, the music department will always be the

heart of this community. Nick and Katie have both

graduated, with Katie graduating from the new high

school building. I am honored to know that our family’s

name was placed on a plaque outside the band room

in the new building. Years will pass, and the names

won’t be as familiar, but that doesn't matter to me. The

memory and the feeling of gratitude will always be

strong for my family.

High School Students Benefit

from Funding for Science

Program Enhancements

Through VISION 2020: Our Children-Our Future

Campaign, donors have given generously to

enhance the high school’s science programs; all six

classrooms have been impacted. Within the last year,

the foundation has provided funding to purchase

equipment and learning tools to create advanced

educational opportunities for each of our students.

Deer Feeders and Game Cameras

Deer feeders and game cameras have been purchased to view and assess wildlife populations, including whitetail

deer, black bear and turkey. Students now have the opportunity to view large game species up close and learn in a

hands-on setting. According to LAHS teacher Mr. Nicholas Bender, “The environmental studies/wildlife course

teaches about ecosystems and ecology, species identification, wildlife management and populations. These tools

will allow them to have hands-on experience with these

topics and discover the variety of species that inhabit our

own school property.”

The Lewisburg Studio

“Our science department has even more ambitious ideas being

discussed right now. We are only able to explore these dreams because

of e Green Dragon Foundation; thank you!”

–Mr. Van Wagner, LAHS Teacher


The Green Dragon Foundation | Annual Report 2017-2018


In Mr. Lauver’s high school biology class, students are

equipped with additional microscopes. He noted, “The

new set of classroom microscopes will allow all students

the opportunity to use a microscope throughout the

entire class. In Anatomy and Physiology classes,

students will be able to use the scopes to study tissues

and other structures related to the curriculum.”

Tools for Engineering-Based Projects

For STEM and Physics programs, new tools including

a soldering kit, a cordless power tools kit and many

others have been purchased using funding from the

foundation. According to Mr. Dillon Durinick, LAHS

teacher, “They are providing students with a real-world

learning opportunity in STEM and Physics programs.

Many engineering-based projects are completed

throughout the school year, and these tools expand

student abilities through applicable ideas from

different engineering fields such as electrical,

mechanical, construction and energy engineering,

among others. The Senior STEM course provides the

framework for authentic scientific research.”

Chemistry & Biology Equipment

The foundation provided funding to outfit Chemistry

and Biology labs with updated Vernier sensors for the

collection of lab data such as pH, oxidation-reduction

potential, conductivity, temperature, melting point,

voltage, spectrometric data and body system functions.

Additional accompanying equipment was purchased

to make further lab investigations more efficient and

effective. According to Ms. Angela Gockley, LAHS

teacher, “Updated sensors allow students a quick and

easy way to collect, analyze and interpret data without

having to spend extra time struggling with more

cumbersome equipment.”

The Lewisburg Studio

American Chestnut Tree Lab

The district partnered with The American Chestnut Foundation to plant chestnuts in a living laboratory. The Green

Dragon Foundation helped support the project by providing funding for the protective fence surrounding the lab.

According to Mr. Van Wagner, LAHS teacher, “Fencing was a must. It was needed to protect the lab from deer.” Mr.

Wagner is very appreciative for GDF’s support. “I have been able to give my students learning opportunities that

some colleges don’t even offer because of the resources provided by the foundation. This program is engaging

students in exciting ways I never could have done on my own with just traditional funding.” He continues, “This is

the largest chestnut tree lab on an American school campus. My AP environmental students have first-hand lab

study experiences. Thousands of students will continue to have these experiences for decades to come.”

Why We Give

Bob ’58 and Sharon ’61 Kribbs

Sharon and Bob Kribbs became annual

donors to The Green Dragon Foundation in

youngsters receive the best possible

education. Giving back to support various

programs is our way of expressing that

all the way. She brooked no nonsense from us 9th and 10th graders: she was on a mission to prepare us for college.

We diagrammed sentences, absorbed long lists of vocabulary words, read Shakespeare, Sir Walter Scott and the Sir

Roger DeCoverly essays. We reported on books that Jennie believed we should read before college. We wrote

five-paragraph essays with introductions, bodies and conclusions—descriptive, argumentative, comparison and

contrast, and definition, to name a few. We wrote and we re-wrote until we got things right. As described on the

plaque outside her new classroom: ‘She demanded the best from us and coveted the best for us.’ ”

academic, arts, athletic and support program opportunities that exist throughout the district. To accomplish

this goal, the foundation seeks support for program-specific endowments, both general and named, the income

from which will support LASD programming for the life of the fund. The seven general endowments include GDF

Thank you to all the businesses, donors,

sponsors, volunteers, golfers, bidders and

PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program

At Lewisburg Area School District

Every gift The Green Dragon Foundation

receives through the PA EITC program improves

the Lewisburg Area School District educational

experience for our students. In April 2018, GDF

distributed $30,800 to LASD to launch the

Advanced Protyping & Design Lab at the

high school during the 2018-2019 school year.

This innovative program will help students:

• Design and render 3d print mockups, and occasionally produce

small scale and full-size prototypes;

• Study anthropometry, biomechanics and ergonomics with an

understanding of how these three variables relate to informed


• Create functional designs on Auto Cad Inventor and output those

designs to a CNC or laser engraver for mass production; and

• Create a working prototype to test their final products.

Why We Support GDF

Swineford National Bank

The Green Dragon Foundation has

benefited greatly over the last nine years

from businesses that have made

donations through Pennsylvania’s

Educational Improvement Tax Credit

(EITC) program. In 2017 alone, the

foundation received $38,500 through

the EITC program, augmenting

innovative programs in the Lewisburg

Area School District. Since 2009,

through this program, Swineford

National Bank has contributed more

than $37,000 to the foundation,

benefiting Lewisburg students.

When asked why Swineford National

Dr. Steven Skalka, Leslie Temple and Ann Glock

Bank selected the foundation as a

recipient of their EITC contributions, Leslie Temple, senior vice president, Business Banking Services, replied,

“When we were approached about contributing EITC funds, we were impressed with the foundation’s

mission. The vision of The Green Dragon Foundation is well thought out and has been put into action.

Over the years, we continue to be impressed with the impact the foundation has had for the Lewisburg

Area School District.

“We have a branch office in Lewisburg, and it is important for us to give back to the community we

serve,” Leslie continued. “EITC funds are a great way to give back to the community. We are proud of being

in the communities we serve and we want them to be successful and vibrant.” The foundation is very

grateful for their very generous annual support.
