Find yourself wanting to provide a concrete “thank you” to your child’s teacher but you’re not sure what to buy? After all, how many ‘World’s Best Teacher’ mugs does anyone need? That’s the purpose of the Gratitude Gift Program. All our District staff appreciate the value of HEF and what we have provided for our students. Many teachers and staff members have been HEF grant recipients at some point. So when you make a donation to HEF on their behalf, they really appreciate it and so do we. We send them a nice certificate with your message, and at certain times of the year, we include a small gift. Plus, your gift is tax deductible.
Spring Gratitude Gifts – $25
The end of the school year is an important time to recognize teachers and staff members. It’s especially important to families of graduating seniors to acknowledge special assistance (advice, tutoring, letters of recommendation). From late April to mid May, we accept orders for special spring Gratitude Gifts (again minimum of $25 per recipient). In late May, we personally deliver certificates and gifts to the recipients. Order your Gratitude Gifts online here. You can also print an order form here and mail to the HEF office along with your payment.
You can make a donation on behalf of a teacher or staff member at any time of the year. We’ll send them a certificate with your message. You can even honor a retired teacher or staff member and we’ll do our best to find them. Make your donation here.
Holiday Gratitude Gifts
When you make a donation of at least $25 (per recipient) during our winter holiday season, we’ll deliver a card and a bag of scrumptious popcorn from PoppedCorn. The deadline is early December. We will deliver the gifts and greetings in person mid-December, before Winter Break.
