About the Tomball Scholarship Foundation
History
Since 1994, the Tomball Scholarship Foundation has been working to make a dream become reality: that every deserving Tomball ISD graduate has an opportunity to go to college.

Who is Eligible to Earn a Scholarship?
Tomball ISD graduates with strong academic records and those needing financial assistance are eligible for scholarships. However, our current resources allow us to award scholarships to only some of our applicants. A Foundation committee makes these difficult decisions and selects the recipients from all the applicants.

Fundraising
Funds are raised for the Tomball Scholarship Foundation through annual campaigns and special events as a result of strategic planning by the Board of Directors and their subcommittees.

The Tomball Scholarship Foundation offers multiple opportunities for donations from individuals and corporations. You are sure to find a program that fits your needs and interests in supporting the Foundation and the future education of students who are members of our Tomball community.

Annual Campaigns
Ten Plus Campaign - The Board of Directors actively solicits donations from corporations and individuals in order to award college scholarships for deserving students. Donor recognition is provided in a variety of ways. Contributions may be made at the following levels.

Memorials and Honorariums
At any time throughout the year, you may wish to honor a loved one by making a donation in a specific person’s name. This may be done for any reason and an acknowledgement card is sent to the individual to inform them of your kindness. Some people wish to honor the memory of a deceased individual by making a contribution and a card informing the family of your thoughtfulness is sent. The Foundation may also be remembered in your will. Often, people wish to bequeath a sum of money to an educational institution to benefit future generations. This type of generosity touches lives forever!
