Spring Branch Education Foundation: Same Great Mission, Cool New Look

As parents and students were updating back-to-school wardrobes, Spring Branch Education Foundation was also rolling out a new look. To celebrate its third successful decade of partnering with Spring Branch ISD, the Foundation unveiled a new logo.

“Same mission, new look,” says Lisa Schwartz, chair, SBEF Board of Directors. “The Foundation is committed to funding programs and scholarships that lead to the success of every SBISD student. Since 1993, we have donated almost $9 million to the district. That’s a lot of grants and scholarships. Our new logo reflects our progress.”

Debra Aitken, marketing chair for SBEF’s board describes the new design as “fresher and cleaner. The logo is reminiscent of a bar graph that demonstrates our continued growth. Thanks to dedicated board members, community volunteers and staff, every year we award more grants and scholarships than the year before. We’re not slowing down. We continue to move forward, providing new opportunities and programs to support our students and teachers.”

In the last school year, SBEF awarded $916,049 in campus and district-wide grants for education-enhancing programs and $118,000 in scholarships to 89 graduates. Every dollar donated to the Foundation remains in the district. This year, SBEF will raise funds in five signature events: Style Show and Luncheon, Oct. 9; Masquerade Ball, Nov. 21; Sporting Clay Tournament, Feb. 16; Golf Classic, Apr. 3; and Running for the Arts, Apr. 30. All donations are tax-deductible and can be designated for specific district-wide or campus projects. Donations may be made online at

The Foundation collaborated with Random Sky, a Houston-based branding and design firm, to create the logo (above).
