Ways We Give
Since 2001, CEF has awarded more than $1,305,000 to Comal ISD in the form of teacher grants, district-wide initiatives and other programming. As a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt corporation, the foundation works to increase private support for educational innovation and initiatives of Comal ISD. These activities are made possible through generous donations from corporate partners, parents and local donors, CISD employees, private grants and community organizations.
The Comal Education Foundation continuously evaluates the most impactful ways to provide resources for innovative ideas and program support that goes beyond Comal ISD's normal operating budget. Funds we raise are distributed to Comal ISD and used to promote student and teacher achievement, motivate students to learn, and provide a platform for all students to reach their maximum potential.

A budget template outlining resources requested for the program and Principal approval form are also required for the application to be considered. All applications are first vetted through district administrators to ensure the outcomes of the grant will fulfill the mission and of both CEF and Comal ISD.
