Thank you to all of the generous donors who have given to HEF’s COVID-19 Response Fund. HEF has raised $640,905 since March, 2020 to ensure vulnerable families have the support they need, including meals and access to materials for remote internet-based learning.

While the impact of the COVID-19 crisis will be felt for months and maybe years to come, we are beginning to refocus on the programs and initiatives that help strengthen and support our community schools for the upcoming school year.

In light of the budget adjustments facing Henrico County Public Schools, every donation is essential for the long-term success of our schools and communities.

We’re all in this together and we’re thankful to have you as a partner. Please help us prepare for the upcoming school year by making a donation to the Building Strong Schools Fund. Your contribution will go directly to the area of greatest need to support students and teachers. To make your gift, click the button below.
