While schools serve a critical role in our society, not every school is the right fit for every child. Alternative education - homeschooling, charter and online programs, and more - can work well for gifted and 2e children, providing an experience tailor-made to their individual intellectual, social, and emotional needs.
As the number of gifted and 2e families seeking alternatives has grown, so has the need for identifying resources and relevant information, as well as connecting with families in similar situations. Additionally, the professionals who work with gifted and 2e children require up-to-date research to best serve this community.
Partner with GHF explains how GHF operates and how financial support from partners, sponsors, and other sources helps us achieve our mission to support, educate, and advocate for gifted and 2e children, their families, and the professionals who serve them, as they pursue alternative, lifelong educational paths. Learn how your organization can be a part of the solution.

Who is GHF?
Who is GHF? explains our approach to giftedness as geared towards the whole child, including not just intellectual giftedness, but also the social, emotional, and sensory intensities and asynchronies that are part of the package.
