Our Beginning

Educational foundation created to raise private dollars for Canton Public Schools

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: A group of community leaders have come together to form an educational foundation to support the Canton Independent School District. The Canton Educational Foundation will partner with the community and school district to provide resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovative opportunities for all students.

The Canton Educational Foundation was formed solely to benefit the Canton Independent School District by providing funds for educational programs and activities which are not funded by the normal operating budget. The Canton Educational Foundation is committed to provide opportunities to enhance student achievement and skill development and recognize staff excellence by encouraging community involvement from individuals, as well as local businesses and civic organizations. One of the priorities of the Foundation will be to fund innovative teaching grants that will provide resources directly to the classroom for teachers to implement creative new educational programs.

The Canton Educational Foundation has retained Foundation Innovation, LLC, a firm which specializes in developing educational foundations, as a consultant to assist with the establishment of the Canton Educational Foundation. School districts and communities throughout the state of Texas have had great success when partnering with Foundation Innovation, LLC. The Canton Educational Foundation is a charitable organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and contributions made to the Foundation are tax deductible to the donor. For more information about the Canton Educational Foundation, please call (903) 567-6257.
