Galena Park ISD Education Foundation
The Galena Park ISD Education Foundation has been established to enrich, enhance and maximize the educational programs for both students and staff of the Galena Park Independent School District. The Foundation was created in 1998 by Dr. Shirley J. Neeley, Superintendent of Schools, and GPISD administrators to provide funds for educational programs and activities which either had not been funded or had been underfunded by the normal operating budget. These funds are used to facilitate student achievement and skill development, recognize and encourage staff excellence, and expand community involvement of individuals, businesses, and civic organizations.
We believe there is a strong correlation between the quality of life in our community and the quality of its educational system. Our vision is to enhance education in GPISD by working to increase private support for educational activities. The Galena Park ISD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Every donation counts toward the betterment of education solely for Galena Park ISD students.
The mission of the Galena Park ISD Education Foundation is to generate and allocate resources on behalf, and for the benefit of the students and staff of the Galena Park Independent School District in a manner that significantly enhances the classroom learning experience, facilitates continued educational opportunities through scholarship support, and enables the Foundation to sustain its financial ability to continue its mission in the future.
