At the Humble Independent School District (ISD) Education Foundation, we know the difference between a good education and a great one is those extras: from the teacher who helps you master long-division after school, to the new chemistry lab that sparks a lifelong passion, to the scholarship that lets you to attend the college of your dreams.
The Humble ISD Education Foundation makes so many “extras” possible for our students, like the ADA-compliant, handicap-accessible sports complex; the Comfort Dog program in an elementary school counselor’s office; and the service-learning project that resulted in a new home for a deserving family in the community.
We raise money from community members, local businesses, corporations, and other foundations to fund initiatives that fall outside the school district’s normal operating budget. The Foundation awarded Humble ISD $1.38 million in the 2015-2016 school year alone, contributing to the district’s reputation for exceptional schools.
Humble ISD educates some 40,000 students each year and consistently attracts families looking for an outstanding school system. In addition to being the 2015 winner of the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards for a Large District, the State Comptroller's Financial Allotment Study of Texas (FAST) found that Humble ISD schools demonstrate “high” student achievement with “very low” spending, thanks in part to the financial support of the Foundation.
But we can’t do it without you. Our tax base in Humble ISD is over 75% residential with very little industrial base, putting our schools at a disadvantage in terms of local tax revenue. In order to continue our schools’ history of excellence, we need your support and donations.
