Sienna Plantation, Toll Brothers Gift $70,000 to Fort Bend Education Foundation

(Missouri City, TX – May 31, 2016) Sienna Plantation and Toll Brothers are making a difference in the lives of hundreds of children by donating $70,000 to the Fort Bend Education Foundation.

All of the funds are being earmarked for Heritage Rose Elementary.

“We are very impressed with the curriculum, staff and principal at Heritage Rose Elementary, the newest school to serve young residents of Sienna Plantation,” said Alvin San Miguel, general manager of Sienna Plantation. “We want to support their efforts as much as we can.”

Sienna Plantation donated $20,000 to Heritage Rose Elementary and Toll Brothers gave $50,000 for 2015 and 2016. In addition, Sienna Plantation is giving another $30,000 — $10,000 for each of the next three years. Representatives from Sienna Plantation and Toll Brothers recently gathered at the school to present school members and the foundation with a ceremonial check.

“We actually received part of the funds at the start of last school year, so we have already put this generous donation to use,” said Lavanta Williams, principal at Heritage Rose Elementary and Elementary School Principal of the Year for the Fort Bend Independent School District. “We have hosted events at the school that have involved the entire family, funded educational field trips and supplemented our curriculums with engaging materials that inspire students to dig deeper into subject matter.”

Brenna Cosby, executive director of the education foundation, said a gift of this kind is unprecedented. “To receive this much money for one school is an incredibly generous gift,” she said. “This will make an tremendous impact and help these students prepare for success in their continued education.”

Through the years, Sienna Plantation has donated frequently to Fort Bend schools, often providing seed money for start-up programs at new schools that have opened in the community, and they have been an excellent business partner with FBEF and FBISD.
