One of the most rewarding experiences for VNEF volunteers is seeing the reaction of teachers, administrators and parents when members of the VNEF Impact Grant Committee surprise them during the annual Grant Patrol. Each May committee members, campus reps, LISD district superintendent and members of the LISD Board of Trustees make the school rounds with cookie cake, plaque and poster in hand. Tears of joy, outbursts of excitement and overwhelming enthusiasm from our winning recipients is common. Funds for these grants come directly from corporate donors and very generous parents and sponsors who participate in the Foundation’s largest fundraisers, VNEF’s annual Gala and Fall Giving Campaign.
