Celina Education Foundation

The Celina Education Foundation, formerly known as Celina Association of Renaissance Excellence (C.A.R.E.), was founded in 1992 in the spirit of academic excellence.  Over the years the Celina Education Foundation has organized community support in order to promote student academic improvement and  achievement and encourage students across CISD to pursue academic excellence.  We have accomplished this by providing funds for each CISD campus to purchase educational materials for the students that otherwise would not be provided, awarding teacher grants through our “Grants for Great Ideas” program launched in the fall of 2018 as well as providing scholarships to graduating Celina High School students.  Last year, with the help of our supporters, we were able to provide approximately $50,000 to CISD campuses and $71,000 in scholarships to graduating CHS Seniors.  Celina Education Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt non-profit organization  where your donations are tax deductible.  Please consider partnering with us to maximize our impact in Celina ISD!
