SBEF Grant Awards

Spring Branch Education Foundation announces 2020 grants

$150,090 awarded to projects for SBISD students

At its May 21 Board meeting, Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) approved $150,090 in grants to fund 28 innovative education-enhancing projects throughout Spring Branch Independent School District.

Each year, the Foundation calls for grant applications, up to $5,000 each, from any of its 46 school campuses. District-wide and departmental projects are eligible for larger grants. Faculty members and volunteers are encouraged to apply.

“This year has been challenging for our students and staff, so it was rewarding to see such innovative projects represented in the grants applications,” said Donnie Roseman, a member of the SBEF Board of Directors and chair of the Program and Assessment Committee. “Each of our community donors makes these grants possible.”

“We’re especially excited about two of our district grants that support the ReadSBISD initiative,” said Cece Thompson, SBEF executive director. “In addition to making eBooks available to students for summer reading, in the fall, we will provide journals for every elementary student to support comprehension and writing.”
