The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation is a nonprofit foundation developed to aid educators and education in three primary ways:

* Scholarships for students pursuing degrees in education
* Grants for public school teachers to meet classroom needs
* “A Helping Hand” program to give financial assistance for education retirees in critical need

Donations can be either turned in with your annual dues, at MARSE meetings (September - November) or in response to the annual appeal letter from the Foundation.
