Alamo Heights School Foundation

Our Story

The Alamo Heights School Foundation is the oldest public school foundation in Texas. Since 1971, with the generosity of our community, the Foundation has provided millions of dollars to meet critical educational needs of AHISD as well as ongoing support of its teachers and students.

In the 1990s, the Texas Legislature passed school finance laws mandating that the more affluent tax based school districts send a significant portion of their taxable income to the state for redistribution to school districts with lesser means. This became known as the “Robin Hood” law. As state funding back to these districts has declined, the AHSF Board has focused on annual giving campaigns and growing a permanent endowment.

The Alamo Heights School Foundation is overseen by a volunteer community-based board and a small staff.
