  3. What do we do with the money we raise?

    Members of the Denton High School family who are experiencing financial distress caused by medical or other crises may apply for a grant from the Foundation by completing an application here on our website. Our Grants Committee will review the application and will obtain additional information and supportive documentation from the applicants. The Grants Committee will then make a recommendation to the full Board of Directors, which will vote on whether to award the Grant. Through 2017, the Foundation had awarded 18 grants to deserving members of the Denton High family.

    We work very hard to keep our expenses low. Because we have no overhead for salaries or facilities, our expenses are almost entirely associated with promoting and presenting events and maintaining fundraising campaigns. To the greatest extent possible, we try to secure sponsorships from generous donors to pay event expenses. Our goal is to use as much of the proceeds from our fundraisers as possible to fund grants.

    As required by law, our IRS Form 990 is available for inspection on request. Just email us at
