How To Help Our Community
How Can I Help our community at this time?
Aledo Children’s AdvoCats
Established in 2002, the AdvoCats organization has donated more than $900,000 to our community. One-hundred percent of monies raised through fundraising are used towards charitable efforts, such as medical expenses, clothing, living expenses, field trips, senior expenses, dental care, school supplies, and counseling.

Aledo Education Foundation
The Aledo ISD Education Foundation partners with the community to provide private resources to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and maximize innovative opportunities for all students in the Aledo Independent School District. Additionally, AEF funds an Employee Crisis Fund to support financial emergencies faced by Aledo ISD employees. During the current pandemic, AISD employees are still being paid. However, some employee families are facing economic hardships as spouses are losing jobs or earning less while unable to work. Supporting AISD faculty and staff is another way to support AISD students and families. To donate to the Aledo Education Foundation, click here.
