About Us

Building a solid foundation…the reason for the founding of the Legacy West Education Foundation. Although the Foundation operates independently from West ISD, the Foundation contributes critical financial and material support to West ISD. We are a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization chartered in October 2010 to provide financial support in addition to the West ISD operating budget.
