Our mission: To partner with families, educators, donors, and organizations to enrich the lives of all Hopkins Public Schools students by identifying and funding additional educational experiences and resources.
Since 1995, Hopkins Education Foundation (HEF), has been an innovative source of funds for all Hopkins schools. Our non-profit Foundation, independent from Hopkins School District 270, is dedicated to providing resources for educational innovations and enhancements for the success of our students. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
Support for the Foundation comes entirely through community contributions, including:
- Parents and other community members
- Corporate contributions
- Fundraising events and projects
- Gifts of stock, cash and securities
- Declaring the Foundation as a beneficiary of wills and estates
Each year, grant applications from teachers and staff are reviewed by the Foundation. Funds are allocated to programs at individual schools as well as to pilot projects that can be incorporated throughout the District.
Thanks to your support, HEF has granted more than $2.5 million to schools in the Hopkins School District!
