About the PSJA Education Foundation

  • The PSJA Education Foundation is an independent non-profit organization that promotes excellence in education by developing and sustaining financial and non-financial support from the private sector to Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD students and staff. The Foundation was founded in 2013 by a group of citizens that believe education is the key to a bright future.

    MISSION & PURPOSE

    The PSJA Education Foundation is dedicated to providing funds for charitable and educational purposes to students and staff of the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District.
     
    The Foundation is organized and operated exclusively for the benefit of the faculty and students in Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD. By fostering excellence in education, the end result benefits the entire tri-city community. Although independent of the other, the District and the Foundation share the same belief that a successful education system must involve a team effort that includes the home, school and community. The objective of each entity is to provide students with the tools they need to be lifelong learners and productive citizens.

    Each year, the Foundation will award competitive Teacher Mini Grants to provide teachers with resources to develop creative classroom projects. In addition, Scholarships will be awarded to district students to encourage them to continue to go to college in line with the District’s overall goal of graduating all students College Ready, College Connected and College Complete.
