Ways to Give

The 2017-2018 Annual Appeal is now LIVE!
Thank you for considering a gift to the Van Alstyne Education Foundation!  Regardless of it's form, your gift can benefit all VAISD students.  Charitable giving today ensures future benefits for generations to come!
We encourage 100% participation from student's families and VAISD staff.  Together we can succeed in making a difference.


Honorary Scholarship

A thoughtful and rewarding way to honor someone special is to set up an annual scholarship in the honoree’s name.  If you have a family member or friend whose life has been touched by the Van Alstyne Schools, we hope you’ll consider making a gift to us in honor of that person.  The minimum is $250 per scholarship.

Memorial Scholarship

Would you like to memorialize a special person, student, teacher or administrator?  With a minimum of $250 you can set up an annual scholarship.
