Beginning with $40,000 of “seed money” in 1992, the Carrollton City Schools Education Foundation has become a six-figure non-profit that is able to make substantial awards each year to support instructional excellence.
To date, the foundation has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to teachers through Instructional Excellence classroom grants, thousands more for at-risk, gifted, and special education programs and serves as a tax-exempt clearinghouse for other school system initiatives. The foundation also administers 10 scholarship programs and was the driving force behind EmpowerLink, a school-to-home community network collaboration with the Carrollton Housing Authority.
The Carrollton City Schools Education Foundation’s primary focus is to enhance classroom instruction. Its hallmark is the Instructional Excellence Grant program, which has awarded $177,582 directly to teachers for classroom instruction.
Empowered by funding
The foundation depends on annual contributions and other funding resources to be able to provide a high level of grant support to the school system. Two other programs separate from the Annual Fund provide unique opportunities for giving:
Employee-Giving Program – Currently, employees of Carrollton City Schools make substantial contributions each year to help fund the Instructional Excellence Grant program.
Teacher of Honor Tribute – Contributions made in a teacher’s honor also support the IEG program. Honor recipients receive a decal highlighting the recognition.
