More Ways to Give

Traditional public school financing is not enough to fund our community’s standards for educational excellence.   

Successful district foundation directors from across the state have pointed to an Annual Fund, and the establishment of an Endowment as the most effective strategies for enriching and sustaining the quality of a school district.

In the coming year, HSDEF will be working with our district’s school board, administration, teachers, PTA’s, and other stakeholders to: 

  • clarify funding needs and roles

  • develop an annual fund

  • begin building an endowment

  • submit grants to foundations

  • and identify more meaningful ways to promote community engagement centered around our schools

If you would like to contribute to any of these efforts, please contact us at

We depend on the partnership of everyone in our community to help provide the vital components that allow us to effectively deliver our mission to our students.  

Thank you for your continued commitment to Hope.
