About Us

 

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The Irving Schools Foundation provides financial resources to maximize educational opportunities for teachers and students in Irving ISD by funding innovative programs, scholarships, and activities that enhance creativity, leadership, and academic success.

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Many local households experience inconsistent access to safe and nutritious food, at some point during the year. To help ensure Irving students are equipped for success, the Irving Schools Foundation partners with community businesses and organizations to collect and distribute food to students in need.

Many of our students depend on their school breakfasts and lunches as their primary source of nutrition. That's why we created our Food for Thought anti-hunger initiative, which supplies non-perishable food items to disadvantaged students on the weekends and during school holidays.

SUPPLIES FOR SUCCESS

To help ensure Irving students are equipped for success, Irving ISD and ISF team up with community organizations to collect and distribute school supplies to Irving ISD students in need. Thousands of students benefit from the Supplies for Success donations each year. Learn more information here: https://irvingschoolsfoundation.org/supplies-for-success/

 

TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARDS

The ISF provides cash awards to each of the Irving ISD Campus Teachers of the Year and the two District Teachers of the Year. Each year, we award a total of over $18,000.  Individuals, organizations and businesses make these awards possible with their donations.

Scholarships are awarded each spring at the Breakfast with the Stars ceremony and range from $1,000 to $10,000 each.
