Your Help is Still Needed

Thanks to your generosity we have exceeded our matching goal of $15,000 for the COVID-19 response fund! Thanks to the Robins Foundation who matched that $15,000, we now have $30,000 more to support HCPS students and their families during this challenging time.

While we have reached our matching goal, your donations are still needed to help support vulnerable Henrico families. The Henrico Education Foundation will use donated funds to buy some of the most-needed items in bulk from an HCPS wholesale vendor. In most cases, items can be delivered the next day. By buying in this way, the foundation not only hopes to help Henrico families get what they need but also to avoid emptying the shelves of local retail stores on which our community depends.

Although new contributions to the fund will not be matched dollar for dollar, your donations are still needed to help support vulnerable Henrico families. To make a donation, click the button below.
