Fund for the Future Endowment
In its second decade, the Foundation takes a significant step to assure that the district’s legacy of learning continues, by creating the Fund for the Future Endowment. This permanent fund will perpetuate our community’s commitment to providing every SBISD student with an outstanding education. As the endowment grows, it will provide a secure source of long-term funding for enrichment programs that will continue to benefit generations of SBISD students.
Funds donated to the endowment will become part of an enduring, ever-expanding resource to provide new opportunities for students and teachers. Income from the endowment cannot be diverted outside our district or be used for any purpose other than to enhance the quality of the educational experience for SBISD students.
There are many ways to donate:
• Pledges of gifts may be paid over a three-year period
• Memorials and honorariums
• Matching gifts — many employers will match or multiply gifts to the Endowment
• Gifts of cash, securities, property
• Gifts through wills or estate plans
Your donation is tax deductible. SBEF is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Because of your participation in the Fund for the Future Endowment, all SBISD students, regardless of economic, social, or cultural circumstances, will continue to have an unlimited opportunity for an outstanding education in order to pursue their dreams. Our community, our state, and our country will reap untold untold benefits from your support for decades to come. This is our legacy.
Today’s students face an increasingly competitive world with rapid social, technological, and economic changes. Faced with ever-tougher college admission requirements, our graduates are still admitted to the nation’s most prominent universities. Faculty and volunteers, just as dedicated as in the past, face new challenges every day.
To help meet those challenges, SBISD continues to have high expectations for studentachievement.
