Mission Statement

The Estancia & TeWinkle Schools Foundation is dedicated to raising and contributing significant funds for projects and programs that will produce substantial and lasting benefits for the students of Estancia High School and TeWinkle Middle School.

The Foundation is the main fundraising organization providing supplemental financial support for academics, arts, activities, and athletics at Estancia and TeWinkle. With state education dollars severely limited, the Foundation plays a crucial funding role by providing Estancia and TeWinkle with carefully targeted grants that promote student achievement and academic excellence on each campus.


Our mission has four pillars:

* Educational excellence for all Estancia and TeWinkle students;

* Enrichment programs that produce well-rounded, intellectually curious, responsible, and fully engaged citizens;

* A well equipped and inviting environment which enhances academic life and work at each campus;

* The mobilization of support from all of Estancia's and TeWinkle's constituents ---- students, faculty, parents, alumni, and the community at large.
