Hannigan The News Staff" Malakoff ISD school board members took the :first step in cleating an education founda- tion Monday night by approving an $18,500 contract with Foundation Innovation, LLC. The consulting firm will help guide the school district through the process of starting "an independent, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization that pro- vides tax benefits ~br donors, and funds pro- grams for students." Foundation Innovation, LLC. describes an education foundation as "one of the fastest growing and most critical causes in philan- thropy today. The degree of success varies by approach, but they have an enormous poten- tial to assist public education, both individu- ally in their own communities and collective- ly across the country." Education foundations try to fill the gap be- tween classroom needs and shrinking govern- ment budgets. For example, the Corsicana :Education Foundation delivered more than $20,000 in grants to teachers in Corsicana ISD last week. "It has worked at other districts," Superin- tendent Randy Perry said Monday night. "I think it is worth a try." With the consultants' help, the district will now start stepping through the process of set- ting up the foundation, including appointing a steering committee, naming board members, See MISD, Page 10A Rotary barbecue lunch set The Rotary Club of Matakoff will host its annual barbecue fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, in the pavilion at Anders Furniture on State Highway 31.
