History of the Foundation

The Kilgore ISD Education Foundation was formed in 2009 as an avenue to raise funds for classroom technology and instruction development for KISD classrooms. The foundation was formed by two local businessmen, Bobby Beane and Randy Brogoitti in conjunction with the KISD administration. The foundation chose not to go public but to approach individual businesses and community members for the first projects. The foundation was able to raise $55,000 in just a few weeks and received matching funds of $100,000 from the school district to install interactive boards, interactive devices and audio/video tools in core academic classes  at the middle and high School campuses. 

The Foundation's mission continues:  To endow and enhance the educational experience of students by providing financial support for district-wide programs and activities.
