    Founded in 2002, the Cedar Hill ISD Education foundation is an independent non-profit organization.  Since our founding, we have disbursed and pledged $673,784,52.  Included in this figure is the $12,500 in grants we awarded on May 2, 2019 during our Grant Patrol, the $2,000.00 we contributed to recognize the CHISD Teachers of the Year.  We have not yet updated the total giving to reflect the over $5,000 spent in March of 2020 procuring school supplies to be distributed to student families.
