The mission of the Cuero ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute financial resources to the Cuero Independent School District to enrich, maintain, and expand programs needed to meet the District's stated mission of excellence in education.
The Cuero ISD Education Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) organization to create support for innovative academic programs of Cuero ISD. Throughout its existence, the Foundation has successfully fulfilled its mission to generate and distribute resources to CISD to enrich, maintain and expand programs needed to meet the District’s stated mission of excellence in education.
The generosity of the Cuero community, both Cuero ISD graduates and non-graduates, coupled with the dedicated board of volunteers has made the history of the Foundation successful and beneficial to the teachers and students of CISD. Since inception, the Foundation has awarded over $500,000 in teacher grants and over $100,000 in scholarships to CISD students. CISD has also been the recipient of approximately $2,000,000 in cash and like kind gifts that have been channeled through the Foundation because of its tax exempt status. Finally, the Foundation’s commitment to growing its endowment and conservative fiscal management has led to an endowment that now approaches three million dollars. This endowment will provide for teachers and students for years to come.
The Foundation’s history, although brief, is certainly rich and successful due to the generosity of the donors along with the hard work and prudence of the board.
