Hopkins Education Foundation, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), is independent from Hopkins Public School District and is governed by a volunteer board of directors. HEF is dedicated to providing resources for educational innovations and enhancements for the success of our scholars.

Support for the Foundation comes entirely through community contributions, including:

  • Parents, caregivers, 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 staff and students are reviewed by the Foundation's Grant committee. Grants are awarded to teachers and students throughout the district for innovative and experiential learning and resources as well as funding district-wide programs and initiatives. To learn more about all HEF grants, visit here.
