Foundation Recognized at Education Foundation Conference

While attending the Texas 2014 Education Foundation Conference in San Marcos, the Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation was recognized because of its “Outstanding Fundraiser Event”. The clever title, “Hometown Hootenanny” caught the attention of the judges, who were impressed with the number of alumni, students, auction donors, school staff/ teachers and volunteers who were involved. A special “thank you”’ goes out to everyone who helped with this delightfully fun event. Your work is still paying dividends with the $1,000” check awarded to our foundation president, Becky Rentz at the annual foundation conference. Thank you for your support and extra thanks to Luke McMillan and Jason Holloway’s talent and planning. The judges were right, it truly was an outstanding evening.

Wylie Education Foundation Awards Grants and Scholarships in May

Our education foundation is preparing to award Teacher Grants and Student Scholarships in May 2014. The Selection Committee is hard at work reading and analyzing applications. These citizens give many hours of their time and make important decisions. This year we plan to award the largest amount of grants ever given in one grant process cycle. Our board members form a “Surprise Patrol” and enjoy delivering a surprise check to each outstanding teacher grant applicant in their classroom! Prior to the 2014 grants, a total of $70,000 has been given in education related gifts to enhance education at the Wylie Schools. Our amazingly generous DONORS make all of this possible and help us support present needs for our schools and grow our Foundation for the future. Your gifts are making an impact on even more classrooms and more lives than ever before.  The 2014 Grants and Student Scholarships awardees will be named in the Wylie Weekly newspaper and on this website during the third week of May.

The Wylie Bulldogs Education Foundation is a not-for-profit organization recognized as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). Our mission is to collect and distribute gifts to promote excellence in education to students and teachers.
