The HCS Foundation was established in 1992 as part of a continuing trend across the country of charitable foundations that bridge the gap between limited public school funding and growing needs of school systems. The foundation is a non profit 501(c)(3) organization led by a volunteer board and independent from the school system.
Funding is provided though tax deductible donations from individuals and corporations committed to education as well as fundraising events.
Grants are awarded directly to teachers that enhance the education experiences of students in specific disciplines as well as meeting needs beyond the resources of the schools. Annual grants to the classroom exceed $50,000 in direct support of teachers and schools.
