2023-2024 Grant Awards to be set mid-April

The ISD197 Educational Foundation Board will be making final decisions on grant applications for the 2023-2024 school year.  These grants are intended for all schools and students in the district with a focus of enriching learning and opportunity.  Check back in April for the final list. 


The I.S.D. 197 Education Foundation supports educational opportunities that help our learners build successful lives.  We do so by seeking additional resources that will enable our teachers to consider new avenues to improve and enhance learning throughout the district.  We allow more imaginative and creative ways for students to learn by generating financial support for programs, equipment, and projects that promote and enhance excellence in our schools.

Who We Are

We are parents, teachers and community members united to invest in educational opportunities that promise the brightest possible future for Independent School District 197 students. 

What We Fund

Gifts to the I.S.D. No. 197 Education Foundation serve the interests of more than 4,600 students who attend its public schools. Our goal is to raise funds for programs and activities not funded through customary public funding.
