Mission & History

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. -Amelia Earhart

Our Mission 

The Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation CULTIVATES and NURTURES the culture of generosity in our community, IGNITES exemplary experiences for every student and teacher, and INSPIRES the achievement of lifelong success.

We believe in our educators. We work to provide our teachers and educators with the additional needs they have to provide the high quality, innovative experiences for their students.

We believe in our students. We work to ensure that all students have equitable opportunities through high quality public education to better prepare them for post-high school opportunities in career, college, military, and life readiness.

We believe in our community. We work with our community to inform them of the needs of our educators, to provide free school supplies to families in need, and to provide classroom funding through Wish Lists and Grants for Great Ideas. 

Together we can make an impact in Santa Fe ISD!

Our History

This year we celebrate 14 years of collaborating with many important entities and people to get us to where we are today. Our successes are due to the many Board Members through the years, the businesses who choose to partner with us, the Board of Trustees, and all of the staff in Santa Fe ISD who stand behind the Foundation. Relationships such as these have enabled us to provide over $1 million in support through Grants for Great Ideas, Classroom Wish Lists, the Indian Innovation Lab (book & STEM bus), assisting in establishing Student Scholarships, End-of-Year Excellence Awards, and our STREAM and Robotics programs. Thank you for your role in allowing us to reach and celebrate this incredible accomplishment!

Your support makes a difference. Here are some ways you can support our efforts:

  • attend an event
  • donate to a Classroom Wish List
  • volunteer with the Foundation
  • make a general donation

The Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Cultivate. Nurture. Ignite. Inspire.
