Ganado Education Foundation

How much of my donation goes toward the students?

- It all does.  Everyone volunteers, so there are no salaries.  The Foundation Board Members donate as well as even purchase their own shirts.  All Board Members have a strong commitment that all funds go to benefit the Students of Ganado ISD.  in 2012-13, the Foundation paid over $37,000 in tuition to Ganado ISD Juniors and Seniors and paid out $5,000 in Teacher Grants to improve instruction.  The only other expenses that will be made in 2012-13 are materials for the fund raising drive and putting on the Academic Banquet.

We already pay taxes. Why should we donate to the Ganado Education Foundation?

- Tax dollars support mandated education.  Foundation funding enhances the educational system, making it possible to offer Ganado ISD students the highest quality educational opportunities and experiences.  In this case it offers tuition for College Coursework that also counts as High School Credit as well as paying for Teacher Grants to improve instruction in their Classroom.

How does the Ganado Education Foundation benefit students?

- The foundation supports student programs, projects and initiatives that do not receive tax-based funding.  It also promotes and recognizes academic excellence by students and innovative instruction by teachers and staff.

How does the Ganado Education Foundation benefit the community

- A community is more attractive to business because of effective, strongly supported public schools.  The Foundation expresses that support.  It also builds bridges between schools and the community, between current leaders and the leaders of tomorrow.
