The Signorelli Company, one of the leading real estate developers in Texas, has pledged $25,000 to the New Caney ISD (NCISD) Education Foundation Endowment Fund. The goal of the New Caney ISD Education Foundation in establishing the fund is to generate $250,000 to potentially provide three top-tier annual teacher grants to foster innovative educational ideas. As the Endowment Fund grows, it will further provide the NCISD Education Foundation Endowment Fund with the financial security to continue to support the district’s mission and vision of ensuring the academic success for NCISD students for many years to come despite fluctuations in the economy, according to executive director Michele Dykstra.
"We are extremely grateful to the Signorelli Company for coming forward to be our first corporate partner in reaching our Endowment Fund goal," Dykstra said. "They have been our steadfast supporters over the years, having made a previous major contribution of $15,000 in support of Children’s Libraries and $5,000 toward District-wide Cornerstone Grant adding Makerspaces to the all Media Centers. Danny Signorelli is a visionary leader who believes that providing quality education is one of the cornerstones in building thriving communities."
"New Caney ISD is fortunate to have talented, dedicated teachers who positively impact the lives of thousands of students in the district," said Daniel Signorelli, President and CEO of the Signorelli Company. "We are proud to pledge our support for annual teacher grants and the Endowment Fund’s long-range goals to invest in the success of future students into perpetuity."
The Signorelli Company is the developer of Valley Ranch, a 1,400-acre master-planned community that lies within the New Caney ISD. In addition to a wide range of homes for sale and abundant recreational amenities, Valley Ranch encompasses the 1.5 million square-foot Valley Ranch Town Center, featuring a wide variety of shopping, dining and entertainment; and Vivacity, a health and wellness destination.
