2023: TEF Year in Review

Tomball Education Foundation 2023 Year in Review

Past experiences are the way many of us make knowledge-based decisions for the future. Tomball Education Foundation had a flagship year, thanks to the support of volunteers, educators, and Tomball Independent School District leaders. We have had many successes and can carry our lessons learned forward, so the future looks bright! 

As we welcome 2024, we’d like to revisit some of the highlights of 2023:


Tomball Independent School District was a finalist in the H-E-B Excellence in Education Awards. And the Tomball ISD School Board was recognized for its support and innovative ideas that are making Tomball a top Destination District in the State of Texas.


Tomball ISD educators received more than $100,000 in TEF grants. We call our school-to-school awards presentations the E-Train Celebration


Thanks to donors like energy-technology company Baker-Hughes, TEF’s Stuff The Bus incentive provided supplies-filled backpacks to district students who need assistance.


Our plans began to take shape as we scheduled our 2023-2024 Save The Date initiatives. TEF champions are educators and students, community and leaders who help make Tomball ISD a frontrunner among Texas school districts.


The calendar year began in August 2023 and that month is when we officially celebrate our excellent team of teachers at Tomball ISD. A New Staff Breakfast on August 2 gave us the opportunity to say “Howdy” to our new educators. On August 4, the TEF New Teacher Vendor Fair explained our grants program and how TEF can support their visions for programs and projects reflecting the highest standards of education in Texas.


The great opportunities that make Tomball schools’ students Texas standouts are only possible through the support of local businesses and organizations. The TEF Donor Tailgate is a fun way to say thanks to our supporters! In September U.S. News & World Report ranked all 3 Tomball ISD high schools among the U.S. Best High Schools


TEF’s yearly gala Boots and Bling was held November 2, 2023 at Tomball’s Majestic Oaks Weddings and Event venue.

Coming Soon...

Why Supporting Tomball ISD Is Important

Tomball students consistently demonstrate the kinds of skills and aptitudes that come from higher quality education. That value can only be realized by giving our schools better equipment, more resources, solid support, and a sense of pride in our community.

When you support the Tomball Education Foundation, you are empowering our teachers. They have greater confidence that their goals are attainable; almost no vision is out of sight! 

When you volunteer time or money, you’re contributing to our community; our future. And when students and teachers see others who are excited about education, that enthusiasm continues throughout the school year and becomes a part of Tomball ISD’s culture. Learn more about ways to give.

When’s a good time to support TEF? Today!
