Independence Title

2022-2023 Teacher Fund Campaign

Generously underwritten by Independence Title Company

MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR 30 YEARS

53+ TEACHERS in 2021-2022. Every dollar counts. Every donor matters.

Approximately 64% of Eanes property tax dollars never make it to our classrooms because they are recaptured by the state to fund other districts.

With 85% of the district’s budget dedicated to personnel, the difference is our teachers. By funding vital teacher and staff positions, EEF bridges the gap that would exist without these teachers.

EEF is the only organization that can fund additional teacher and staff positions for our district. 100% of your EEF donations stay in the district. 

Teachers Make it Happen!

Most of the EEF funded teachers are NOT REQUIRED by the state

With the ever-increasing state tax dollar recapture program (know as “Robin Hood”), nearly 64% of our property tax revenues never make it to the classrooms. In fact, in 2021 a total of $102,556,577 was redirected to the state’s general fund to help fund less-wealthy districts and charter schools, leaving us with a significant funding gap to fill every year. Unwilling to compromise the best-in-class education we have always provided, EEF was created to ensure an exceptional education for all EISD students, now and for future generations. By funding vital teacher and staff positions, EEF bridges the gap that would exist without these teachers. Funding teachers gives more personal attention, more advanced courses, more electives and more support staff for every student in EISD. In 2020-21, Niche ranked EISD as the #1 best school district in the State of Texas, and EISD ranked #11 of school districts in the nation.

The following teacher and staff positions, courses and programs are NOT REQUIRED or supported by the State of Texas (TEA); they are considered extras or luxuries.
