The Education Foundation of STISD 

The Education Foundation of South Texas ISD was established in 2004 to support the students of the district, and since that time, the organization has awarded over $600,000 in scholarships and enrichment grants.

The mission of the Education Foundation of South Texas ISD is to generate and distribute resources that provide and sustain opportunities for educational growth for the students of STISD.


  • Build community awareness of the Foundation
  • Support STISD students' educational goals by allocating scholarships and summer enrichment grants
  • Preserve and perpetuate the endowment by building community-wide partnerships
Education Foundation is looking for board members to serve STISD and its students

Board members can come from inside or outside of the district community. Parents, faculty and staff, businesspeople and community members from all three counties served are welcome. Interested? Please take a few moments to complete the form. 

I am interested!
