HEF’s Mission Continues – Passes $3 Million Benchmark
Undaunted by the current pandemic and the shift to distance learning, Hopkins staff and students continue to innovate and generate BIG ideas. Virtual grant presentations were made for $19,588 to four staff grants HERE (in addition to the $3,184 presented to student clubs through The Awesome Fund grants earlier this spring).
Student growth is the focus of this grant cycle, which also includes a $50,000 COVID-19 inspired boost to HEF’s Pathways to a Healthy Future, the HEF district-wide initiative in support of the whole student (more HERE).
Fall Grants Cycle – Attention All Staff
During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, HEF is responding promptly to the needs of Hopkins Public Schools educators by offering an expedited grant cycle. The fall grant cycle begins immediately. HEF will accept Concept Forms through November 13, 2020. A member of the Grants Committee will contact the applicant with specific instructions for next steps.
Please be prepared to answer in-depth questions and offer a detailed budget. More info: http://hopkinseducationfoundation.org/applying-for-a-grant/
We hope you are well!
