Welcome to Mainspring Schools!

In the 2014 edition of our yearly video, a few of our teachers talk about what makes Mainspring so special. Produced by Joey Basham and Jon Ray.

Make a Donation

Mainspring Schools provides far deeper services than required by the state standards and these services come with a cost. The school relies on financial donations to provide these services that are so crucial to giving children a great start in life.

Most of our families are low-income and are using government-subsidized childcare vouchers in their transition from welfare to work. These subsidies only pay about 60% of real costs. Private contributions help close the gap between costs and public reimbursements. More. . .

Making A Difference Together

In order for Mainspring Schools to do the
important work that we do, we must have community support. Many thanks to our generous sponsors.

We are proud to participate with the "I Live Here, I Give Here Campaign" which aims to boost local giving by educating fellow Austinites about the needs in Central Texas and the organizations working to meet those needs.
