An East Texas non-profit reaches its goal and far beyond. Thursday morning, the Tyler ISD Foundation revealed big dollars. In a press conference the foundation announced it raised more than $385,000 that will go toward Tyler ISD. The money was raised over a four month period in its annual I Love Tyler ISD campaign. The foundation's goal was $200,000.
"We were excited that we went passed the goal," said Tyler ISD Foundation Executive Director Larry Goddard. "It's an easy ask, when you say the more money we raise the more we can help students and teachers in the classroom. We know they face challenges and there is always money and things they can't do within a limited budget, so our funds help teachers do even more with their students." This is the foundation's 18th annual campaign.
