Supporting the Foundation

Why is your gift important?

The Education Foundation provides private funding directly for creative and innovative programs that enhance the learning experience and encourage staff excellence. Your gift helps to ensure that Aransas County ISD students will graduate with the quality career and academic tools necessary to become productive citizens.

Who decides how the money is spent?

The allocations committee is responsible for the solicitation, review and acceptance of proposals for projects and programs that will improve and enrich classroom education. Since its inception, the Education Foundation has awarded over one million dollars to ACISD teachers and schools.

An endowment for the future

The Foundation has demonstrated good governance and fiscal responsibility by building a one million dollar endowment and establishing objective growing guidelines. The endowment funds innovative education for Aransas County ISD students for years to come.

Where does the money go?

Every school in Aransas County ISD benefits from the ACISD Education Foundation grant programs that train teachers, provide equipment, and offer new instructional experiences to students of all ages. Each year, grant proposals are submitted to the Education Foundation and undergo an extensive review process following the grants committee guidelines. The number of grants awarded depends upon the amount of money raised through the Education Foundation’s annual fundraising events.
