Garland ISD Education Foundation

This foundation was established to support the students and staff of the Garland Independent School District, which encompasses the north Texas communities of Garland, Rowlett, and Sachse. The foundation is overseen by a 17-member Board of Directors, comprised of a cross-section of the communities served by the Garland ISD. The foundation operates independently, but in cooperation, with the district.
