Giving back over $1.36 million to Weatherford ISD schools since 2001.
Every teacher deserves our support and every child deserves a great education!
The mission of the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources for programs that enhance the educational experience of our children and teachers.
For twenty years, the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has provided funding that allows Weatherford ISD teachers to implement creative learning projects for students in Pre-K to 12th grade through our grant awards program. We also provide new school supplies and backpacks for students whose families need support and give scholarships that allow our teachers to continue their education.
In 2018, the Education Foundation added a new funding priority called Heather's Books. Launched in memory of Ikard Elementary teacher Heather Holland, the Education Foundation gives $10 to each Pre-K student in Weatherford ISD to purchase books from their school's fall and spring book fairs. The Education Foundation is honored to fund this program that continues Heather's passion to instill a love of reading in children.
We are grateful for the corporate, local business, and individual friends of Weatherford ISD who believe in the value of a public education and are willing to invest in the leaders of tomorrow. Through the tax-deductible donations of these individuals and businesses, the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation provides grant funding directly to our teachers who help take our students from good to great.
The Weatherford ISD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
