Supporting Athletes Today, To Become The Scholars of Tomorrow.

The Edinburg Rising Stars Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization composed of a group of professionals working to serve the City of Edinburg’s youths. Through fund-raising efforts, the foundation works to provide young student athletes with the support that enable them to participate in various City of Edinburg Parks and Recreation Department sport leagues and programs. The foundation is also committed to awarding eight (8) scholarships annually to one female and one male student athlete at each of the four edinburg consolidated independent school district high schools to assist in furthering their post-secondary education.

Supporting Graduates

We've awarded $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors, 1 male & 1 female student athlete from each of the 4 ECISD high schools. $8,000 in scholarships awarded for the 2014-15 academic school year.

Active Youth

We've pledged money to assist families with Edinburg Parks & Recreation registration fees. We strive to eliminate family financial burdens from students participating in city leagues. Applications for assistance can be found at Edinburg Parks & Recreation (315 E. Palm Drive).

Higher Education

Edinburg Rising Stars promotes and assists Edinburg's future leaders to pursue postsecondary education.

Granting $8,000 In Scholarships.

Every year we strive to give out $1,000 scholarships to one female and one male student athlete from the Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District. For the 2014-2015 school year, we gave out a total of $8,000 in scholarships to four female and four male student athletes. Our recipients fill out an application with some important questions about their future. We had approximately 80 applications this year, and we’re pleased to say everyone was amazing. The decision was difficult, but we narrowed the decision to one female and one male from each high school that we felt best met our criteria.

Supporting Families & Athletes.

We understand some families may not have the financial support to fund their children through the Edinburg Parks & Recreation sports league and various activities. That’s where we come in. We help those families in need so their children can grow into the athletes they want to be. The ultimate goal is to eliminate a family’s financial status as the common barrier that prevents economically disadvantaged students from participation in various parks and recreation leagues.
