Alamo Heights School Foundation

Endowment

The Alamo Heights School Foundation has provided significant support for students and teachers in AHISD for over forty-five years. AHSF is committed to furthering its mission of encouraging high expectations for all students in a supportive, nurturing environment and maximizing individual student potential through challenging curricula and access to the latest technology.

Created in 2002, the AHSF Endowment Fund provides an avenue through which advocates of public education excellence can significantly impact AHISD in the future as well as today. Although the majority of endowment funds are restricted, AHSF is committed to growing the General Endowment Fund through periodic campaigns and development of a Planned Giving Program.

Endowment income is distributed to AHISD annually to support several areas of commitment to academic needs. These commitments include funding for Endowed positions, named grants for instructional training and special programs, grants that recognize outstanding instructional achievement and named scholarships for AHHS graduates. While support of teacher grants and salaries come from the Annual Giving Campaign, most gifts to AHISD are calculated from the endowment fund.

Contributors to the Endowment Fund provide stable, long-term funding for programs that will enable AHISD to continue offering outstanding public education despite financial restrictions placed on the district by the state. A tax deductible gift to the Alamo Heights School Foundation Endowment Fund is a uniquely effective way to invest in the future of AHISD and our community.
