Mission Statement

DeBusk Foundation, continuing the work of Manuel and Edith DeBusk, makes grants annually to educational organizations for the operation of our signature DECATS summer programs for gifted elementary and middle school students.

Funded “DECATS” Programs

The Foundation supports specific educational programs that have been developed by the DeBusk Enrichment Center for Academically Talented Scholars.  These “DECATS” programs offer unique opportunities for high-ability students to participate in a three-week summer adventure of challenging and enriching coursework that has been developed by experts in gifted education.  Currently, DeBusk Foundation supports DECATS programs on 8 school campuses throughout the state of Texas.
