Help Us Raise $125,000 by June 30, 2018

to Secure the Future of GRMS

For every dollar you donate to the Be Our Match Campaign,
The Hernandez Foundation will match it with $2, up to $250,000.

The Hernandez Foundation and Mike Hernandez, a Brownsville native, donated $250,000 to GRMS's Endowment Fund on Thursday, September 23, 2016. This donation by The Hernandez Foundation will be gifted again for the 2017-2018 academic school year as a matching grant for the school. This will give Guadalupe Regional Middle School the ability to double that gift with matched, tax-deductible contributions from any community supporters.


What does that mean?

For every dollar you donate, The Hernandez Foundation will double it. If you donate $500, The Hernandez Foundation will donate $1,000, making it as if you donated $1,500 to secure the future of the school for years to come. Your total investment gets tripled in this "Be Our Match Campaign".


“For 15 years, GRMS has provided specialized academics, social support for students, and support for graduates transitioning into college,said Michael Motyl, GRMS President. “Despite our success, because of our tuition-free model, we have lived year-to-year. This gift from Mr. Hernandez will allow us to grow our Endowment to ensure that the school remains even in difficult economic times so that we can continue our goals of college and Heaven for our students for generations to come.” 


The Endowment Fund was previously made possible through the generous donations of many others and most recently by businessman and philanthropist Mike Hernandez. Hernandez’s gift will significantly grow Guadalupe Regional Middle School’s Endowment, creating opportunities for current and future students to transform their lives through higher education.

“Our greatest need is annual scholarship funding,” said Motyl. “However, we are asking community members to consider making an addition gift to our Endowment for this special moment in our school’s history. Donations can be made at the school or through our website This matching grant will extend your impact not just financially, but also in the way Brownsville kids are served to and through college.”

Originally from Brownsville, Hernandez now resides in Colleyville, Texas, and is president of the Dallas/Fort Worth-based company D&M Auto Leasing. He is dedicated to improving the Brownsville community, in large part by focusing on the education of Cameron County students. He hopes Guadalupe Regional Middle School carves a path for students to play a role in a better future for Brownsville. 


“I experienced firsthand a high-quality education and want to share that tremendous experience with young people from my hometown by supporting students and their transition into higher education,” said Hernandez. “The Endowment Fund will allow students from this area to receive the best education possible and encourage them to return to their hometown to share their talents.”
