Review for Irving Schools Foundation, Irving, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Irving School Foundation began over 30 years ago and exists to maximize educational opportunities for our students. Since its inception, Irving School Foundation has given away over 4,000,000 in scholarships to our young people. The foundation gave 138 scholarships to our students and staff amounting to over $250,000 at Breakfast With The Star in April, 2016.

I have been a board member the last three years and currently serve as president. Our executive director Crystal Scanio and our staff, and board are always looking for more ways that our community can help our students in Irving ISD. In addition to aiding our students, we also help our teachers and staff. We underwrite Educational Enrichment grants for our teachers and staff by paying their registration to workshops. In addition, we have Shark Tank once a month for teachers and students to share ideas that they want to try to maximize learning. We continue to need support from our community to help our deserving young people. It is truly a joy to serve our district as an additional resource.
