The Carthage ISD Education Foundation honored donors at a special dinner in November 2019 at Carthage High School, highlighting the importance of the foundation's mission to enrich the education of Carthage ISD students.

The Carthage ISD Education Foundation has cancelled its annual donor reception because of COVID-19, Executive Director Cynthia Harkrider said Thursday.

The reception had been previously set for Nov. 19.

Meanwhile the foundation's annual drive is still accepting donations through Jan. 31. The foundation’s primary purpose benefits Carthage ISD students and staff by supporting activities not funded by tax dollars. They work to increase private support for educational activities in Carthage ISD.

These funds will be used to facilitate student achievement and skill development, to recognize and encourage staff excellence and to foster creative approaches to education through involvement. Scholarships are awarded in May to graduating seniors through the Foundation.
