Students and families count on CSISD staff every day to inspire learning. 


This year, teachers and staff have pledged $151,000 to support education in CSISD, with more than 56% of employees having pledged donations through the annual employee giving campaign.


Pledges made to the CSISD Education Foundation campaign add up to support local schools, students and teachers.


Donations go directly to innovative classroom projects and scholarships for graduating seniors.  In addition, funds assist students in need through Chrissy’s Closet and foster literacy skills for young readers through the Amy Anderson Literacy Legacy program.


Education Foundation Board President Heather Simmen and Director Teresa Benden recently presented a check to Superintendent Dr. Clark Ealy.  


“The $49,233 contribution to CSISD represents half of last year’s giving campaign that is invested directly back to the campuses from which donations came,” Simmen said.   


“We are deeply grateful for the incredible generosity of the district staff. Together, we are improving education in our community,” Benden shared.


The Foundation also shared it’s gratitude for the Dailey Company, which is the Title Sponsor of the 2019-2020 CSISD Employee Giving Campaign.


Established in 1999, the College Station ISD Education Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public corporation. Tax-deductible gifts made to the foundation provide funds for opportunities above and beyond the normal operating budget of the school district which are not available through tax revenues. Its mission is to enrich teaching, inspire learning and recognize the successes of the district’s students and teachers.
