Why the need for an Education Foundation?

State funding is waning in all school districts and communities across Texas are looking for ways to fund additional opportunities to provide a top-rated education for all students.

Foundations, especially those set up through 501(c)3 guidelines, allow people like you, the ability to direct funds to the foundation , ensuring your donations are used to provide the highest quality support by meeting current needs of students, educators, the district and the community through a structured grant selection process.  In addition,  you will be provided a charitable donation contribution statement for  donations to the Poth Education Foundation which may qualify for a tax deduction.
