As our kids go back to school we recognize that, after a few challenging years, they need more assistance, an extra push, more resources and more opportunities to grow and succeed. They need heroes that will invest in them through programs and initiatives that will have them soaring in no time. The kids need YOU!

We invite you to participate in our HEF Hero Matching Challenge. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of AT&T, your gift between September 1 and October 31 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000. That means doubling your impact with an incredible $40,000 invested in students in Henrico County. Be a HEF Hero and help our students; it’s as easy as 1,2,3.

“For nearly three decades, the Henrico Education Foundation has brought together the entire community – businesses, educators, parents and families, and other community leaders – to launch programs that help children succeed in the classroom. Their programs and initiatives have made a meaningful difference in the lives of children in the county, which is why we’re pleased to support the work they do every day.”  Vince Apruzzese, president, AT&T Virginia
