Northwest ISD Education Foundation

Enhancing Excellence, Innovation and Distinction at NISD

The Northwest ISD Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization composed of community leaders and businesses, working together to enhance the quality of education in the Northwest Independent School District. 

Private donations to the foundation benefit students and teachers by supporting activities not funded by tax dollars. The foundation’s innovative teaching grants allow teachers to take a more creative approach to education and dream bigger. Student scholarships are awarded annually to help ensure that Northwest ISD graduates continue their path to success, even after they leave the district.

Grant and scholarship recipients are chosen carefully by our voluntary board of directors and community partners on an anonymous basis to ensure every student, teacher or staff member is judged on merit.

The Northwest ISD Education Foundation is the proud recipient of $5,000 awarded by Tanger Outlets Fort Worth at their Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony today. The NISD Education Foundation exists to raise funds to empower teachers through innovative teaching grants, engage the community and encourage students to be future ready by providing student scholarships. Having Tanger Outlets as a partner in the heart of our school district’s 234-square mile boundaries will be instrumental. The district looks forward to this new partner in education.

Northwest ISD is one of the fastest growing districts in the state. Serving 14 communities and spanning three counties (Denton, Tarrant and Wise), has experienced fast growth nearly doubling in size the past ten years. The district adds an average of 1,200 new students each year, and that growth is attributed to the number of active housing developments and the retail and business industries in the area.
