The Forestburg ISD Education Foundation awards Foundation funds through a volunteer board of directors made up of business, community and educational leaders. We are a 501(C)3 non-profit, tax exempt, philanthropic organization of citizens who:

 

  • Share a vision of enhancing education in the Forestburg ISD

 

  • Work to increase private support for educational activities in the Forestburg ISD

 

  • Foster creative approaches to education

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Forestburg ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources to the Forestburg ISD to enhance opportunities for all students to acquire a quality education, enabling them to become life-long learners and productive, responsible members of society.

The Foundation will achieve its mission by directing resources toward the folowing goals:

 

  • Inspire parents and community to create partnerships with the school district to enrich education.

 

  • Recognize and support staff for exemplary innovative efforts.

 

  • Motivate students to continually exceed expectations.

 

  • Build community awareness for the Forestburg ISD Education Foundation.

 

 


 

Why It Was Established

Forestburg ISD has long enjoyed a tradition of pride and excellence. It is the desire of the Board of the Forestburg ISD Education Foundation to support this tradition by establishing an organization that would encourage and reward innovation in the classroom now and in the future.

Taxpayers are making every effort to meet the basic needs of students to provide a quality education for all children. However, the Foundation seeks to provide educational enrichment opportunities for students and faculty beyond that provided by the budget of the Forestburg ISD.

To advance this mission, a permanent endowment will be created by collecting tax deductible gifts from donors who share our vision. The interest from this endowment will be used to provide solid monetary support for generations of Forestburg ISD students.
