Education Foundation

The New Braunfels ISD Education Foundation provides resources to inspire learning, enrich teaching, and enhance opportunities for the teachers and students of NBISD.

Investing in teachers… Investing in students.

Established in 1999, the NBISD Education Foundation was created to provide assistance to and to generate financial support for the New Braunfels Independent School District. The Foundation provides funds not available through the District’s normal operating budget for programs and activities to facilitate student achievement and skill development, to recognize and encourage staff excellence, and to provide a vital link between the community and the classroom. The 

Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation operating independently with its own board of directors. The Foundation seeks to:

  • Encourage all students to work to their highest potential.
  • Encourage and recognize innovative staff efforts.
  • Promote the creation of new educational projects by providing grants.
