Welcome to the Duncanville ISD Education Foundation!

Vicki Smith, Administrative Director, joined the Foundation in July of 2019. She is a retired educator with valuable experience and talents.

Our goal is simple: to support students and teachers in the Duncanville Independent School District.


Since we opened our doors in 1996, the Education Foundation has been helping teachers creatively teach their students. We do this by funding innovative teaching projects and giving teachers additional tools to help their students which will result in increased student achievement. The Foundation has funded over $1 million in innovative grants.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus has changed from innovative teaching grants to a large-scale fund-raising effort to support the District's technology needs of students. Please see our "Ways to Help" page.

Dena McFerren, Executive Director, joined the Foundation in January of 2019. She brings specialized experience in relationship building and community involvement.
