End of Year Giving Before 2016 Arrives

The holiday spirit is in the air and time spent with friends and family is on the horizon.  Before we take a break for the holidays, we would like to give everyone a big THANK YOU for your donations and/or sponsorships to the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation.  Our Foundation is lucky to have loyal supporters like you.

schoolarshipAs the New Year approaches, we ask you to please remember the opportunity to make an end of year charitable gift to CFEF.  Your gifts are invaluable in providing graduating seniors of CFISD an opportunity to pursue higher education.  Over the past 44 years, greater than $6 million has been awarded to over 1,300 graduating seniors and almost $2 million in staff development grants.  Your donation is eligible as a charitable tax deduction as allowed by law if payment is made on or before December 31, 2015.  Only a few days away!

You may also consider establishing an endowed scholarship.  The structure of endowed funds differs from other types of gifts.  Instead of the entire amount of the gift being spent outright, the total amount of the gift is invested.  This makes an endowment a perpetual gift because only the interest is used to support the Foundation while the principal continuously grows.  If you would like to donate online, please visit our website.

Happy holidays from our family to yours.  Thank you for your support!  To stay up-to-date on everything happening at the Cy-Fair Educational Foundation, make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn!  Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Future!
