Ann Richards School Foundation
The Ann Richards School Foundation secures resources to ensure the success of Ann Richards School students and builds a sustainable and effective public-private partnership that supports the school.
The Ann Richards School Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible and support the school’s enhancement programs that provide opportunities and support for our students. Enhancement Programs include our College Bound program with full-time college advising staff and college visits at every grade level, summer programs, after-school programs, speakers and field experiences, scholarships for students, and curriculum and professional development.
The Ann Richards School Foundation hosts events and fundraisers throughout the year to help support the young women leaders of the Ann Richards School. Learn how you can help.
