OUR FOUNDATION

The Victoria ISD Education Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit tax-exempt organization that shares a vision of enhancing education in Victoria public schools. The Foundation supports the district by:

  Working to increase private support for educational activities
  Supporting activities not funded by tax dollars
  Fostering creative approaches to education through private grants and involvement
  Awarding Foundation funds through a volunteer Board of Directors



OUR MISSION

The mission of the Victoria ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources to the Victoria Independent School District that enrich teaching, inspire learning and enhance opportunities for students to become contributing members of society.


OUR PURPOSE

The Victoria ISD Education Foundation provides an innovative source of funding to support the school district's stated mission of excellence in education.

The Foundation does not replace lost state funding or take the place of the district's operating budget, but does provide funds for those projects and activities that go beyond the normal classroom experience.

Funds provided by the Foundation will benefit students and teachers in the Victoria Independent School District and will make a positive difference for them. Contributions will remain in the school district and benefit the entire community through an investment in education and quality of life.



OUR GOALS

  Encourage all students to work to their highest potential
  Support staff for innovative efforts
  Recognize staff for exemplary teaching
  Build community awareness for the Victoria ISD Education Foundation
  Inspire parents and our community to participate with the school district in enriching education
