SISD Education Foundation


The Stephenville Education Foundation was formed by a group of caring and committed citizens with a vision to enhance educational opportunities and student success in Stephenville Independent School District. The Foundation supports activities not funded by tax revenue, in order to cultivate and support innovation to benefit students and staff alike.  The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt philanthropic organization. A volunteer board of directors composed of business, community and educational leaders governs the foundation.
