The Pasadena ISD Education Foundation holds several fundraisers throughout the year with annual events like the McDonald’s Texas Invitational Basketball Tournament, Golf Classic tournament, Pasadena ISD Athletics Hall of Fame banquet, and the Shining Stars Gala. The money raised through these wonderful events helps to support teachers and students throughout the school district. Since the foundation’s birth in 2003, PISDEF has given out nearly $3 million in mini-grants.
