The Valero Benefit for Children East End Innovation Fund

 Overview:

The Houston ISD Foundation is excited to announce the Valero Benefit for Children East End Innovation Fund, as part of the fourth round of the Houston ISD Foundation Innovation Grant to our district educators and leaders. The Valero Benefit for Children East End Innovation Fund aims to recognize and support excellence in innovation by providing $100,000 in grants to enhance East Area elementary, middle school, high school programs and curriculum (including the Yates HS Feeder pattern).  Each project leader or award winner will be named an “HISD Foundation/Valero Benefit for Children Innovation Fellow” during the year their project is active. This is a competitive grants program designed to encourage teachers to develop innovative projects that lead to increased student success.

If your project will serve HISD’s North, South, or West Area Schools there is a separate application available here for you.
