The Mission of the Education Foundation for Waxahachie ISD is to enhance the quality of educational opportunities in the Waxahachie Independent School District.
A History of Excellence
Formed in 1999, the Education Foundation for Waxahachie ISD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists with one reason in mind - to support and enhance quality education in Waxahachie ISD schools by funding innovative educational programs that lead to increased student achievement. The Foundation is guided by a group of twenty-one local board members who volunteer their time.
Why Does the Foundation Exist?
With tax revenue from the state continuing to decline and district enrollment levels continuing to increase, the Foundation is committed to maintaining the quality education that Waxahachie students currently receive. While state funding and local tax dollars are stretched as far as possible, current funding covers only the basic needs of students in the classrooms. In order to implement innovative and creative educational opportunities, outside resources must be identified.
When the Foundation Raises Money, Where Does it Go?
Funds raised by the Education Foundation for Waxahachie ISD directly benefit teachers and students. The Foundation financially supports a number of educational programs including innovative classroom grants, dual credit scholarships for high school students, and the annual Honors Breakfast, which recognizes the top students in the senior classes at Waxahachie High School and Waxahachie Global High School.
