The Huron City Schools, its ancillary organizations as well as interested citizens, have formed the Huron Educational Foundation (HEF) to aggregate a variety of funding sources to serve and enhance numerous academic opportunities, including scholarships, for Huron City School students.
Established late in 2011, the Foundation has been designated as a tax-exempt organization as a
501 c (3) and is registered as a corporation with the State of Ohio.
Our Goal and Purpose
The Foundation’s purpose is to solicit, invest and distribute funds to assist with the academic successes of the Huron City School students, through student financial assistance to aid in their collegiate, postgraduate or other advanced education, and through grants to support and enhance programs, provide tools and equipment and provide opportunities for Huron teachers to improve their teaching skills or content knowledge. With the establishment of the Foundation, all donations are tax exempt, therefore, encouraging more deductible charitable giving. Investing funds from multiple entities into one foundation will allow for a higher rate and a better return on investment.
It is the Huron Educational Foundation’s goal to aggregate all contributed funds and invest them in various portfolios for the betterment of all academic opportunities for Huron City Schools and its students.
