The Hainesport Twp. Education Foundation, commonly known as "HEF" is a non-profit school-business partnership overseen by a volunteer board of trustees. We operate exclusively under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our goal is to raise funds for capital improvements that will directly impact the educational experience of Hainesport School students. We work directly with the school administration, the school board, PTO, the township committee as well as the community as a whole to provide capital improvements to the Hainesport School District.
Our mission is to improve and maintain the quality of our community through addressing the needs of our school.
In the past, we purchased the following for the school:
Equip the school’s new STEAM Lab/Maker Space with the latest iPads and
Class response clickers
Mobile computer lab
Wireless Score Board for the School Gym
Different from most campaigns, on two different occasions, we also brokered a means for obtaining team uniforms for both the boys & girls school soccer teams.
A Special Thank you to Ewing Sports! Go Hawks!
We look forward to continue working with our town's families, businesses, the new administration, school board and township to continue to grow our students, school and community.
At the end of each year at graduation, HEF also awards a certificate and scholarship to a graduating 8th grade boy and girl.
The award recognizes the chosen individual's:
School Spirit & Enthusiasm for Learning
Demonstrating Respect for our Teachers, Administrators, Fellow Students, and the Hainesport School Facility.
