The Foundation aims to help the district fill the gap between providing basic, standard education and creating exceptional learning opportunities for the 2,500+ students of Community ISD. Our goals are to: •Provide a continuous source of funds with gifts received from individuals, Corporations, businesses, trusts and investments. •Promote student growth and excellence through enrichment programs and activities. •Support and recognize creativity among educators through unique growth opportunities and providing resources for innovative teaching ideas. •Motivate parents, alumni and community to become directly involved in education.

To connect with local business owners, corporate gifts, connect with our alumni, parents and community through North Texas Giving Day, Annual Gala and Employee Giving campaigns.

The Community ISD Education Foundation’s board of directors is made up of volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and skills who partner with the executive director to set the strategic direction for the organization. We also have strong ties with the school district and community organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, that allow us to tap into their networks for donors and volunteers. We also work with the schools to leverage the talent of the students of Community ISD to further our mission. Finally, we have the capacity to build and maintain relationships with local businesses and corporations that provide volunteers, as well as financial and in-kind contributions.

Our key performance indicators include, but are not limited to: • An increase in revenue from individuals, community organizations and businesses • An increase in the number of volunteers who help us carry out our mission • An increase in the number of scholarships that we distribute to CISD students • An increase in the number of educators and students impacted through our innovative classroom/campus grants

The Foundation has increased the amount of grants we award each year and the number of programs we can fund. We have been able to award over $200,000 just in classroom grants and programs. Our Employee giving has increased as well as our multi-year donors. We continue to reach out to new businesses and grow our donor database every year. We have seen new Technology, Reading programs, Crime Scene Investigation, Weather Stations, and even more awarded. We expanded our staff to include a part-time executive director, helping us make an even bigger impact. Our Vision is to continue to support our educators and students through innovative programs and we can't wait until we have given back over 500,000!
