A Brighter Future Starts
With A Good Education

The Foundation supports and provides unique resources and innovative teaching ideas, encourages ALL students and employees to work to their highest potential, and inspires parent and community engagement.
WHO WE ARE
The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that include local business, industry, and community leaders.
WHAT WE DO
Since our inception in 2000, we have funded over 4.9 million in grants to ensure our educators are equipped with tools and resources to enrich Lamar CISD student learning experiences. We encourage and empower our teachers to think outside of the box and find creative ways to transform their classroom learning environment through our Innovation Grant Program. Our district-level programming includes Camp Connect, Girls on the Run, STEAM Camp, scholarships for High School Seniors and District Paraprofessionals, Special Needs Prom, New Teacher Dinner, and Family Connect initiatives. Our grants are funded through the support of our employee giving initiative, signature fundraising events and generous donations from our community.
