Tomball Education Foundation Awards Tomball ISD Educators with Grants for 2020-2021

The Tomball Education Foundation recently honored Tomball ISD educators with over $43,000 in grant funding, across eight different campuses. The funds will be dedicated to creative projects that will be submitted through the grant process.

The Tomball Education Foundation gives funding for education-oriented activities and projects that are outside the means of traditional education funding. These funds are used to help students reach greater heights, develop new skills, support and encourage the continued excellence of their staff, and bring community involvement to civic organizations, individuals, and businesses within their community.

TEF has awarded over $150,000 in grant funding to Tomball ISD teachers, since 2018. Congratulations to these 2020-2021 grant recipients:
