    Joshua ISD and the Joshua ISD Education Foundation would like to invite you to partner with the district by becoming an Owl Backer!

    As we continue to #TakeFlightJISD and empower learners for postsecondary success, we are committed to fostering partnerships with our incredible community, businesses, and organizations to help support our Owls. Your partnership provides direct investment and benefits to students and staff through grants, scholarships, innovative programs, technology, and more!

    By becoming an Owl Backer, you will have the exclusive opportunity to connect with our district in many ways. We offer four levels of partnerships featuring different contribution amounts. Each package provides valuable opportunities and benefits for community members, businesses, and organizations. This program also allows for additional opportunities for current Education Foundation investors.

    We are confident the Owl Backers program will forge positive and beneficial partnerships for the community we serve. The program will create new relationships and strengthen existing ones as JISD continues to grow. We are grateful for such a supportive community and your partnership provides further proof of what makes our district so special.

    We are now accepting Owl Backers for the 2021-22 school year. Now is the time to join this exciting new program! The application deadline is September 17, 2021. Packages will be available for pickup beginning August 16 at the JISD Central Administration Building located at 310 E. 18th Street, Joshua, TX 76058.

    Launched in 2008, the JISD Education Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation governed by a Board of Directors who are dedicated to education and share a vision for excellence in our schools. The Foundation was established in 2008 by a cross-section of community volunteers to support and enhance the education of all students in the Joshua Independent School District. The Foundation solicits, manages, and distributes funds for enrichment purposes in academic program areas not otherwise funded by the District. Funding is supplemental and does not replace or alter the use of tax-based revenue. Contributions to the Foundation are received from individuals and corporations to support projects and activities, and to create an endowment fund. Programs are funded through annual donations and the interest earned on the endowment.
