Ways to Give

Meal Bags -- Food Drive 

Over 90% of the students we serve are on the free and reduced lunch program which means that, often times, the only food they get is the food that's provided during school hours. This leaves a huge need during weekends and holidays. Several times a year, we provide students with meal bags containing everything necessary to keep a family of four well nourished for a week. If you are interested in holding a food drive for CIS students, please contact Melissa Edgerly at melissa.edgerly@cistarrant.org for more information.  

Annual Giving

Long-term estate and financial planning allows you to make a substantial contribution to Communities In Schools while benefiting your personal financial goals. Take the opportunity to speak with your financial planner about ways to plan for your future while ensuring the future of CIS.

Endowment Giving - Become a Legacy Builder
The Communities In Schools Endowment Fund, managed by the Communities In Schools of Greater Tarrant County Foundation, exists to provide perpetual funding for the important work of CIS.  Investment earnings are used to support our programs, benefiting current and future students.

Gifts of $1,000 or more and/or a commitment to include the Communities In Schools of Greater Tarrant County Foundation in your estate plans qualifies the donor to be recognized as a Legacy Builder. The CIS Legacy Builders is a giving society which recognizes those who choose to provide enduring support for a cause they care about deeply; a group dedicated to sustaining support for CIS students for as long as they need us. Legacy Builders is our way of acknowledging your personal commitment to the future – today.
