ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The Hawkins ISD Education Foundation believes that every child deserves a strong foundation. We support programs that directly impact student learning.
The Hawkins ISD Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation governed by a board of directors. The Foundation plans and administers its programs in cooperation with the Hawkins Independent School District.
The Foundation collects and distributes contributions from individuals, teachers, businesses, and organizations. Sometimes people wonder why extra funding is needed since our public schools are supported with tax dollars. In reality, those tax dollars cover “fixed overhead” such as salaries, utilities, maintenance, etc. The Foundation invests in teaching materials and experiences that are not funded. The Foundation encourages innovative education. Your donation to the Foundation really makes a difference for students and staff in the district.
With your support, we can achieve our goal of funding more and more project requests each year.
EVERY GIFT is greatly appreciated and will quickly be put to work. Thank you for your generosity!
And remember, your gift is tax deductible as allowed by law.
The funds raised will go back to the campuses in the form of educator grants.
These funds are available through an easy grant application process.
