Each fall, HEF is proud to provide Harrisonburg City Public School educators with the exciting opportunity of applying for funds to support innovative classroom ideas.
Thanks to individual, family, foundation and business donations, HEF is able to support teachers through grant awards. HEF not only encourages educators to explore new ways of learning but works to share and promote the new ideas to other educators and the broader community.
Applicants are encourage to make their projects align with the district's strategic plan. HEF strives to support selected projects through community connections in addition to the funds.
Applications are reviewed by a panel of community members and HEF board members. HEF hopes to announce selected projects by the end of October.
Past Grantee Showcases

Named Grant Opportunities
Sponsors have the opportunity to support these projects with a Named Grant. For a minimum of $1,000, HEF will select a project in celebration of your business or honor/memory of an individual. HEF seeks supporters to do an annual gift, multi-year gift or even an endowed fund. Named grants can be reserved for a specific school or focus area.
