Values and Vision

The Foundation works closely with the school system but is completely independent. Our Board of Directors consists of residents, retired educators and business people whose commitment to public education in Liberty is strong and in the best interest of every child in the school system. Each board member brings different skills and expertise and all members volunteer their time and services.
The Liberty Education Foundation values enrichment opportunities, inventive teaching and academic exploration as we strive to promote the empowerment of teachers as an essential dimension of encouraging the academic success of students.The vision of the LISD Education Foundation is to create a partnership with the community to support students in pursuit of academic excellence. We firmly believe that investing in our students today will return excellent leadership tomorrow.
The Mission of the Liberty ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources to the Liberty ISD to enrich, maintain, and expand programs needed to ensure that each student reaches his or her full potential.
We are striving to promote excellence in teaching and enhanced educational experiences for our students, the Liberty Education Foundation cultivates joint public-private partnerships that will provide teachers with community support and access to additional financial resources.

From Our President
There is no better way to help LISD students than by helping fund innovative teaching projects that benefit not only one student but many students year after year.
These opportunities are made possible by the generous donations from donors through Foundation grants.
The Foundation is excited to have been able to fund 78 grants totaling over $213,214 since our inception in 2007.
Please know that your donations and continued support of the Liberty ISD Education Foundation provide engaging and inspiring experiences for students and teachers alike.
I look forward to another year of serving and am excited for the new opportunities the Foundation will be helping provide for Liberty ISD.
Thank you again for your support.
