KATY (Covering Katy News) - Cane Island, home to many parents, grandparents and increasing numbers of Katy ISD students, has joined the corps of keystone investors contributing to the Katy ISD Education Foundation and its Inspiring Imagination teacher grant program.
The foundation’s investor program allows the community, both individuals and business leaders like Cane Island, to provide a sound financial platform for foundation initiatives by committing to three years or more of support.
Cane Island President Dan Naef joined the Katy ISD Education Foundation for 2019-2020 Inspiring Imagination teacher grant announcements.
“It was one of the most special experiences I’ve had in Katy,” Naef said. “To be present and witness the joy in a teacher’s eyes when they win a grant, and to hear the excitement in their voice, it’s priceless.”
“Nothing says community like taking care of our children, and taking care of the educators who pour into our children.”
The Katy ISD Education Foundation has awarded $1.6 million in its first seven years of Inspiring Imagination teacher grants, impacting students in classrooms all around the district. Funding for the program is provided in part by long-term investors like Cane Island and annual fundraising events Fireflies & Foodtrucks and GROOVE.
