The Henrico Education Foundation (HEF) is an independent nonprofit organization in collaborative partnership with Henrico County Public Schools — the commonwealth’s sixth largest school division —supporting more than 48,000 students in 74 educational facilities. Since its formation in 1993, the foundation has provided almost $10 million in direct funding affecting more than 650,000 students, teachers, parents, and guardians across Henrico County. As a foundation, we do more than just provide additional funding for public education, we are innovators working in partnership with parents, teachers, and administrators, continually identifying and developing transformational initiatives that improve school performance and lead to student success.
