The Henrico Education Foundation (HEF) is an independent nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax deductible organization providing Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) with additional education programs, financial resources and support to increase student achievement. Since its founding in 1993, HEF has played a vital role in meeting the educational needs of Henrico’s children.
During the 2021-22 school year HEF impacted more than 36,575 students, teachers and parents — with over 93% of this impact made possible by donations directly from partners like you! You are the reason we are able to grow programs, launch new initiatives and achieve outcomes for so many Henrico children.
Together we can Ignite a Brighter Future.
