Jasper Public Schools Foundation

The Jasper Public Schools Foundation (JPS Foundation) was incorporated in December 2002 to support teachers and thereby benefit students associated with the public school system in Jasper, Texas.

Through the leadership of the Board of Directors, monetary gifts are used to provide :

  • classroom instructional needs proposed by JISD instructional staff; and
  • support for other worthy programs in the district.

The JPS Foundation “Give a Gift” program connects classroom needs and projects with those who want to support students and teachers involved in public education.  It allows donors to have the opportunity to be personally involved in their giving.


The Foundation, led by the Board of Directors, seeks funds to support these programs by:

  • Soliciting donations for the general fund from area businesses, philanthropists, alumni and parents;
  • Offering opportunities for monetary gifts to be given in honor of birthdays, anniversaries, graduation and other significant events of friends and loved ones;
  • Offering opportunities for groups or individuals to support the Foundation by honoring the memory of loved ones and friends;
  • Providing a Jasper ISD employee deduction plan that provides a means for faculty and staff to support the Foundation on a regular basis; and
  • Promoting teacher Give a Gift proposals to individuals or businesses;

The Foundation is a tax-exempt organization.  All gifts are acknowledged with a letter from JPSF documenting the money received. There are no administrative costs associated with the Foundation.  100% of all donations support Jasper public schools and students.

Support of the Foundation provides an opportunity for Jasper public school exes and friends to continue to enjoy and contribute to that special Bulldog spirit. If you would like to make a donation, send it to:
