The Foundationís mission is to break the cycle of poverty through education while promoting a culture of giving excellence. With a geographic focus of seven Central Texas counties, the Foundation supports nonprofits and schools that work to close achievement gaps for low-income students in grades K-12 and to prepare them with 21st Century skills and access to quality careers. Grants are awarded in three areas: projects that focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and integrating technology into teaching and learning; improving the quality of, and access to, out-of-school time programs; and enabling and supporting systems-level change and collaboration to support an excellent education for all Central Texas students. Applicants in Travis, Williamson, Hays, Bastrop, Caldwell, Burnet, Blanco, and Llano counties are eligible to apply. Applicants must complete a letter of inquiry as the first step. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
