A generous donation from the family of a former North Grove School student, the late Kenneth W. Marsh, has fulfilled a dream of the NGSA.  An endowment fund has been established through the DeKalb County Community Foundation for the perpetual care and preservation of this DeKalb County icon.


The North Grove School Preservation Fund in memory of Kenneth W. Marsh will provide annual interest payments to help fund operating expenses.  The principal will remain intact.  Additional donations and memorial contributions can be made at any time.  Checks intended for this fund should be addressed to:

A note of appreciation from Roger W. Marsh:

"My sister and I are very impressed with the level of preservation that has been achieved at the school and we are thankful for the efforts of the people of the North Grove School Association to preserve, maintain, and show the school to the public.  We were pleased to learn that this donation will enable you to establish a preservation fund for the school, and we hope that it might stimulate more donations to ensure that the school is maintained and open to the public  for many years to come."
