Through a dynamic public-private partnership with Henrico County Public Schools — the commonwealth’s sixth largest school division — HEF serves more than 48,000 students in 72 educational facilities. Since its formation, the foundation has provided more than $9.7 million in direct funding affecting more than 600,000 students, teachers, parents and guardians across Henrico County. The Henrico Education Foundation funds creative instructional approaches with strong academic goals that directly address the opportunity gap and provides resources for teachers to support the most challenged schools. The foundation’s unique role is vital to meeting the educational needs of our community’s children while providing partnership opportunities for businesses, community leaders and citizens to directly impact public schools.
