EDUCATION FOUNDATION MISD GOLD CARD PROGRAM The MISD Education Foundation partners with the community to create a source of funding for educators through grant projects that enrich and enhance the classroom experience. The Foundation has raised more than $3.5 million since 1998 to support innovation in classrooms and hosts several fundraising events throughout the year to carry out its mission. The Gold Card Program provides great perks for community members ages 65 and older. The card gives seniors free access to district athletic events, campus theatre productions and select events at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts. As an added token of appreciation, MISD hosts a free senior tour in the spring that highlights various campuses, academic programs and extracurricular activities.
