“The support of the Smithville Education Foundation has been one of the most positive things that has occurred at the school system.
The Foundation has grown into a corner stone of additional support for the teachers and students.”
- Cheryl Burns, SISD Assistant Superintendent
Dear Friend and Community Member,
The Smithville Education Foundation (SEF) is a group of dedicated volunteers working to raise money and support the Smithville Independent School District (SISD). SEF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation organized to augment and complement school district programs and activities.
The SEF Board is honored and humbled to be able to partner with SISD to bring resources to our kids. Each and every time SEF volunteers arrive at the schools, students, teachers, and administrators greet us with smiles and excitement. They know they will be getting resources and experiences that they could not have without the support and assistance of the Smithville community. These smiles belong to you, as a contributor to our schools.
Since we began the first programs in 2011, SEF has funded over $25,000 in innovative teaching grants to SISD teachers and has provided nearly $15,000 to support the fine arts through the Enrichment Day program. During the 2016-17 School year, donations to SEF brought ear-to-ear smiles because donations were able to fund two rounds of grants (instead of just one) that provided teachers with the resources they needed to complete nine different projects — SEF was able to fund all of the requests we received.
SEF’s goal is simple… to help our teachers inspire greatness in their students. Your contribution directly impacts the ability of our teachers to reach more students and help them reach their fullest potential.
With your financial support, you are making a difference by ensuring that SISD students receive the opportunity to do and be their best. Your donation, regardless of the amount, benefits our students and helps them become their best selves.
