Our goal at Cleburne Education Foundation (CEF) is to seek and obtain contributions from the community to develop and expand educational opportunities for the students of the Cleburne Independent School District. CEF acts as a partner in the community’s overall strategy to support its students and teachers. Our current top goals are:

  • To raise private dollars from the community to invest in projects and programs in Cleburne ISD not funded by local, state or federal tax dollars.

  • To support teachers and administrators in their efforts to provide the most innovative and creative learning opportunities for their students.

  • To work together with the community and Cleburne ISD so all Cleburne students can achieve their dreams.


Our Mission is to enhance the learning opportunities for students and teachers of the Cleburne Independent School District.


Our Vision is to be the recognized leader in a community actively engaged in supporting CISD students and teachers in their continuing journey toward excellence.

“To improve the quality of education, it takes more than the state provides. And that is why we have been proud supporters of Cleburne Education Foundation since its inception. We share in the responsibility that it takes a community to raise our children and to provide them with the best education they deserve. We strongly believe an investment in this foundation is a win – win for our students, our businesses and our city.”

As long as there are children in need of education, we will continue to build and nurture the strong community support needed for providing quality education at our public schools. If you are interested in contributing toward providing higher quality education for our future leaders, we would appreciate your assistance.
