Investing in our children, investing in our future.

Since 1995, HEF has awarded more than $3 million and 490+ grants to prepare Hopkins scholars to succeed in the 21st century.

 The Hopkins Education Foundation partners with the Hopkins Public School community to enrich all students with new learning experiences and resources. 

HEF's non-profit Foundation, independent from Hopkins Public Schools, is dedicated to providing resources for educational innovations and enhancements for the success of our scholars. 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. To learn more about all HEF grants and which schools have been awarded, visit hopkinseducationfoundation.org/grants-by-school/.

Thanks to your support, HEF has granted more than $3 million to schools in the Hopkins School District!
