Our Mission: Advancing Educational Excellence

The Education Foundation encourages community support in order to provide private funds to Aransas County ISD staff and students for creative, innovative programs that enhance career and academic education and promote staff excellence.

About The Foundation:

The Aransas County ISD Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization, founded in August 2001 as a 501(c)(3) entity, by an independent group of community, business, and educational leaders committed to the idea of advancing educational excellence in Aransas County.

How your dollars impact Aransas County ISD

  1. Annual Education Excellence Fund Drive donations RECOGNIZE and ADVANCE EXCELLENCE in the schools of Aransas County ISD by
    • providing grants for creative and innovative education programs which could not otherwise be funded
    • providing scholarships for higher education
    • sponsoring Holiday Symphony by the Sea, a cultural community attraction and showcase for ACISD’s tremendously talented music students
    • sponsoring Flavor of Success, a showcase of The Foundation’s grants in action
    • sponsoring Shining Stars Over Aransas to honor outstanding high school seniors and the teachers who have impacted their lives
  2. Endowment Fund donations add to the corpus of the endowment, whose earnings support The Foundation’s mission and goals in perpetuity.

Since its inception in 2001, The Foundation has provided over $1 million in grants, scholarships, and special programs that directly impact the caliber of education our students receive.

With your help, The Education Foundation is bridging the economic gap, bringing programs into our schools that inspire, challenge and expand the minds of our youth and providing unique opportunities for our students that could not otherwise be funded.

Aransas County ISD is now the most progressive educational leader in the Coastal Bend, a leader other districts seek to emulate.
