HISD encourages the community to help ‘invest in schools’

If you believe in the power of public schools and want to make a direct, meaningful impact on the lives of children, consider becoming a Friend of HISD.

The work HISD’s public educators do every day to prepare the district’s 215,000 students for college and career is indispensable, and your investment as a Friend of HISD can help them do even more.

  • $100 will buy books for students to build home libraries, helping to combat the literacy crisis in Houston and ensure every child is reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade.
  • $250 will buy college textbooks for dual-credit high school students earning an associates degree, making higher education accessible to all students and allowing them to jump right into a career or continue their studies at a four-year college.
  • $500 will support the purchase of Google Chromebooks for middle school students to help transform teaching and learning by personalizing instruction and allowing 24/7 access to digital resources.
  • $1,000 will support the purchase of high-tech simulators that gives students hands-on, real-world experience in high-demand career fields such as health science, architecture and construction, and manufacturing and engineering.

In addition to knowing that you have made a direct impact on a child’s life, you will get to see firsthand the work being done in HISD by going inside classrooms and meeting top educators in the district. See for yourself what a difference the Friends of HISD can make.

Become a Friend of HISD today and make an investment in children and the future of Houston.
