The Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation has partnered with the National Compassion Fund to grow the Santa Fe Strong Memorial Fund and to disburse the funds to the victims of the May 18 tragedy at Santa Fe High School. The National Compassion Fund offers free assistance to communities across the nation dealing with similar circumstances because the process is legally and financially complicated. To learn more about the National Compassion Fund and review the Protocols of the Santa Fe Strong Fund, please visit www.nationalcompassionfund.org
The Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports Santa Fe ISD students. Our mission is to unite the Santa Fe community support of quality public education. This mission is accomplished by raising funds that are separate from the school district and granted to SFISD for innovative educational projects and classroom supplies. However, with the tragedy on May 18, our Foundation has taken on an additional role as manager of the Santa Fe Strong Fund that will support the victims. You can learn more about that work by clicking on the links above.
