Make A Donation to Purchase Chromebooks EEF Logo

Virtual learning is a reality for Elizabethtown Independent School (EIS)’s 2,400+ students; however, access to adequate technology remains an issue. Ideally, EIS would be 1:1 – meaning each student in the district has an assigned Chromebook for day-to-day learning, assessments and communication.

A 1:1 district is even more important as we face educating our students in the midst of a pandemic. Elizabethtown Education Foundation (EEF), in conjunction with local non-profit organization, Give 270, will be raising funds to purchase the 150+ outstanding Chromebooks for EIS students.

Please consider supporting EIS students and their learning by making a tax-deductible donation below, you will support Elizabethtown Education Foundation and help purchase Chromebooks for Elizabethtown Independent School (EIS) students.

How you can help?

  • Donate at give270.org/chromebooks if you are able.
  • Forward this email to friends and family. Share the video about the effort. Tell everyone you know.
  • Encourage and thank an EIS teacher, administrator and staff member as they embark on the new school year.
