Spring Branch Education Foundation sets a record fundraising goal

Leaders with the Spring Branch Education Foundation (SBEF) presented a check representing gifts and scholarship awards totaling $924,154 for the past fiscal year to district leaders and Trustees during the Sept. 22 regular monthly meeting of the Board of Trustees.

This year’s total marked a new fundraising record for the Foundation, which has raised more than $8 million since the nonprofit, education-related group was founded 21 years ago. The symbolic check for more than $924,100 was presented to Trustees by SBEF Chairman Lisa Schwartz and by Executive Director Cece Thompson.

This total fund-raising amount sets a record high record for SBEF. Since its establishment, the Foundation has provided more than $8 million in financial support to teachers and students in Spring Branch.

To support programs, the Foundation hosts both annual and special fund-raising events. These include this fall’s planned 2014 Legacies Gala on Oct. 25 and 2014 Style Show on Nov. 21.

Springtime events will include the Clay Tournament in February, a Golf Tournament in March, and May’s annual Running for the Arts 5K Run and 1K Run/Walk, which supports the arts and physical education programs in SBISD. In addition, SBEF is continuing to seek donations for its Fund for the Future Endowment.
