Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Education Foundation

COEF - Together We Make a Difference!
  • Welcome! We're glad you stopped by!

    The Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD Education Foundation (COEF) is a philanthropic non-profit organization dedicated to partnering with the community to provide opportunities to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovation to promote excellence in education for all COCISD students. 

    Formed by a group of caring and committed citizens in 2011 with a vision to enhance educational opportunities and student success in COCISD. The foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors composed of business, community, and educational leaders. Since its inception, the COEF has awarded over $300,000 in grants to COCISD teachers, departments and campuses, including a book vending machine for James Street Elementary, technology equipment for all campuses, and materials for innovative classroom projects that would not have otherwise been funded.

    We appreciate your partnership as we strive to provide our kids with educational opportunities they would not receive otherwise. Thank you!

    Together we ARE making a difference!
