Mission: To provide opportunities for excellence in education, promote innovation in teaching, and partner with the community to enhance the quality of education for all students.
Vision: Lighting the way for teaching and learning at Forney ISD.
The Forney ISD Education Leadership Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax exempt organization created in 2003 and formalized in 2004. The purpose of the foundation is to light the way for teaching and learning in Forney ISD through the Advantage Plus+ program and innovative teaching grants.
From 2004-2017 the Forney Education Foundation awarded each Forney ISD high school graduating senior, who applied and meet the criteria, with a $500 scholarship, awarding over $2 million during that time.
Beginning in the fall of 2008, the Foundation launched the Innovative Grant Program for Forney ISD teachers, administrators and staff to recognize and support innovative instructional programs and initiatives which will positively impact the students of Forney ISD, to date the foundation has given over $1,050,000 to classroom teachers.
In 2017, the Foundation partnered with Forney ISD and created the Dual Credit Advantage Plus+ Program. Since inception, the Forney Education Foundation has awarded over $100,000 to dual-credit, CTE and AP students.
In 2022, the foundation began supporting new initiatives including the first annual Forney ISD Film Festival and summer STEAM Camps. In 2023, the foundation began supporting Project Backpack providing backpacks and school supplies for over 1,500 students at Forney ISD.
To continue making a difference in the Forney community, we depend on the partnerships of people just like you.
