What We Fund

Innovative Teacher Grants

The DSEF exists to provide every teacher the opportunity to Reach Higher and Inspire others to do the same. One way we encourage this is through Innovative Teaching Grants.  Applications will be accepted and announced in the Fall Semester!


Student Leadership Grants

DSEF has a long tradition of recognizing leadership among our students.  The Student Leadership Grants are designed to foster the development of students’ leadership skills through their efforts to serve their school, our community, or others in the world around us.  Students, together with their faculty sponsors, apply for the grants.

The Nick LeFevre Community Youth Fund

This fund provides support for DSISD students whose financial circumstances present a significant challenge, or barrier, to that student’s participation in a school-sanctioned activity or event.

Any eligible student in good standing in the DSISD may apply to the fund for financial support.


Mental Health Initiative

DSEF and DSISD are committed to providing students and staff with critical mental wellness services and support. Thanks to generous donors, the Dripping Springs Education Foundation, in partnership with DSISD, have funded vital staff positions to support all students and district employees.

Become a mental health hero today and help us continue funding these life-changing and life-saving positions in DSISD!
