The Education Foundation raises money throughout the year to sponsor teacher

mini-grant request through their Mini-Grant Program. BISD teachers have the opportunity to write a request for additional educational materials and supplies for their classrooms in the form of a grant.

Annual proceeds are distributed by the Foundation to the mini-grant recipients every fall during inner campus surprise announcement. 

The Mini-Grant Program is an effective and rewarding way to celebrate and distribute the Foundation's annual proceeds. The recipients have no idea they are selected until the Foundation surprises them during the award ceremonies.  

    This year the Education Foundation, along community mini grant sponsors, the Technology Department, Special Education Department and Special Programs Department funded over $53,000 mini grant request!!! Members from the Education Foundation, as well as mini grant sponsors traveled to each campus to announce each recipient in person, and present them with a recipient pennant.  The look on the recipients faces when they were presented with the news was priceless!! The Education Foundation embraced the moment with each recipient and looks forward to future years of funding and presenting mini grants. 
  • The Brenham ISD Education Foundation has graciously accepted multiple donations in the sum of $5,500 thanks to generous local sponsors. The funds will support the BISD Education Foundation’s Mini-Grant Program, a program established to generate and distribute resources to BISD teachers. 

    Local Businesses such as Bank of Brenham, Brenham National Bank, Brazos Valley Schools Credit Union, Citizens State Bank, Rotary Club of Washington County and Cindy Wells of UBEO have committed to joining this year’s Mini-Grant Program through sponsorships. 

    Sponsors for this year’s program will have the opportunity to participate in the mini-grant award presentation to the recipient, and those who sponsor $500 or more will have their company name printed on recipients award pennant.
