HEB ISD Education Foundation
The mission of the HEB ISD Education Foundation is to raise and award private funds and community resources to support the HEB ISD’s commitment to excellence in education. The Foundation, established in 1995, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization guided by a volunteer board of directors who have a sincere interest in the success of our students and staff.
