May Madness donation month
During May 2014, make a donation to the ATPE Foundation and help Texas educators and students blossom! Donors who contribute to the foundation during our 2014 donation month will receive special recognition at the ATPE Summit in July.
Since 2008, the ATPE Foundation has provided $63,000 in literacy and technology grants to Texas public school and $90,000 in scholarships to current and future Texas educators. Nearly 30,000 Texas schoolchildren have benefited from the foundation’s technology and literacy grant programs. The foundation has also distributed more than $43,000 to Texas schools affected by disasters. None of this would be possible without the generous support of our donors.
