Program 1

Innovative Education Grants

The Innovative Education Grant Program awards funds to support those projects that make learning fun for students and encourage them to achieve academic success. District employees submit their idea for an innovative educational project for students and the Foundation awards grants to the most-worthy projects in May of each year. The Foundation utilizes unrestricted donations and special event net revenues to fund this program. In 2000, the first year for the Foundation to award innovative education grants, $46,000 was given to 24 teachers. In 2015, 113 projects to 33 campuses were awarded $253,495.

Program 2

Designated Grant Program

The Humble ISD Education Foundation works with donors wishing to designate funds for things like grants for specific projects or campus campaigns, such as a playground campaign or campus based annual fund campaign. The most important thing to understand about designated funding is that it goes entirely to the campus or program the donor is supporting. These "donor restricted" funds allow the donor to give to a particular cause within the district and 100% of the donor's contribution (minus credit card fees in some situations) goes directly to the program or campus they wish to support.

Program 3

Teacher Wishlist Program

The Humble ISD Foundation's "Teacher Wishlist Program" is set up like a gift registry. Teachers can log on, create a list of items they need for their classroom and email the link to their parents and contacts. Donors make a gift to the Foundation in the amount of the item. The funds are sent to the district and can be accessed by the school. Benefits to the teacher are convenience and safe, non-pressure way to ask for the supplies they need so they don't have to purchase classroom supplies with their own monies. Benefits to donors are tax-deductibility as well as benefiting from the teacher using the funds with a district approved vendor at or near wholesale prices.

Annual Fund Campaigns

For the Humble ISD Education Foundation, there are two programs that are considered annual fund opportunities. One is the Foundation's Board Giving Campaign in which board members are asked to make a year's unrestricted gift to the Foundation. The other is known as the Humble ISD Employee Campaign where employees are asked to make a financial commitment to the Foundation in support of their campus, and the innovative education grants program. Both campaigns are rolled out in September and run throughout the month of October. We encourage board members and employees to make a gift that is meaningful to them, and understand that meaningful means something different for everyone. In the 2015-2016 school year, Humble ISD employees set a giving record with pledges totaling $344,795 to the Foundation. This level of giving is indicative of the employee's strong support of the Foundation.

Funding Needs

The Humble ISD Education Foundation takes pride in helping Humble ISD administrators find funders for a variety of projects throughout the district. The district serves more than 41,000 students on 43 campuses. Financial contributions made through the Foundation may be designated to a specific campus or program in the district. Unrestricted gifts may also be made in support of the Foundation's Innovative Education Grants Program. In 2015-2016, the Foundation received more than $1 Million in grant requests from teachers and was able to fund $395,000 of those requests. Unfortunately, many of the grants that we received were unfunded.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The Humble ISD community has had a long and successful commitment to excellence in Texas education. When the Education Foundation was created in 1999, it began with only $46,000 in donations. As of June 2015, more than $7.88 million dollars have been raised, including the donations needed to build the Insperity Observatory. This state-of-the-art observatory houses four telescopes, a retractable roof, a teaching classroom and Internet capability. Humble ISD is now one of a few school districts in the United States to have its own observatory.The Humble ISD Education Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was created by concerned community members who wanted to support innovative educational programs that lead to increased student achievement. The Education Foundation funds these projects and initiative that fall outside of the scope of the district's normal operating budget.When teachers have exciting ideas that can expand their students' imaginations and open their minds to new learning possibilities - they often find themselves without the resources to bring these visions to life. The Education Foundation makes these creative ideas a reality through grants that bring creative education to life. Hundreds of these inspiring projects have become a reality in every campus throughout the forty-two schools in Humble ISD.Because of the generous support from teachers, school district staff, parents and other community donors, enriching projects take place in our classrooms every day. We have been privileged to help make this happen by funding everything from musical instruments, science projects, art supplies and all the necessary tools to make our teachers' ambitions a reality. Should you have questions or like additional information about the Humble ISD Education Foundation, please feel free to contact our office. We love sharing the amazing stories of how philanthropic giving can make a huge impact on public school education. Jerri Monbaron, Executive Director"
