Since 2004 the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation has funded close to 800 programs totaling $3.75 Million.

The Mesquite ISD Education Foundation provides funds for projects outside the regular school district budget through a grant application process. Funds donated by the greater community enhance innovative programs that benefit students and support teacher initiatives and growth. Grant applications must align with the Campus/District Improvement Plan, established curriculum framework, and co-curricular activities.



The 2024-25 Grant Guidelines and Applications are now available.


(Grants funded for the 2024-2025 school year)


Innovation Grants:

Innovation Grants must be a minimum of $10,000 and no more than $15,000. The Education Foundation is seeking to fund high impact innovation that challenges norms.

Campus Grants:

Mesquite ISD campuses are eligible to receive a maximum of $3.00 per student enrolled, or no less than $2,000. Enrollment is based on the PEIMS “snapshot” date. Campus Grants may be innovative in nature but can also meet other more essential program and campus needs.
