Holland Educational Foundation
What is HEF?
The Holland Public Schools Educational Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation, established in 1984 to provide community and business support for the children of Holland Public Schools. Funds raised are distributed through semi-annual grants to the teachers/staff of Holland Public Schools.
What We Do:
Each year, HEF makes it possible for Holland Public School teachers to go beyond conventional budgetary limitations by providing funds for the purchase of supplementary technology and creative and innovative learning materials and experiences. Every HEF grant awarded must contribute directly to student motivation and learning.
Due to generous community support, HEF was able to fund more than $31,000 in new grants during the 2010-2011 school year. Since our founding in 1984, the foundation has awarded over $590,000 in grant support to the teachers & staff of Holland Public Schools.

Each year, HEF raises funds through a Bid$ for Kid$ auction event held in early fall and an end-of-the-year letter campaign. In the fall of 2012, our Bid$ for Kid$ event will be held Saturday, October 6 at the Midtown Center located on the corner of West 15th and Pine Avenue. IMPORTANT! To help us save money on printing and postage — if you'd like to receive an invitation to our 2012 Bid$ for Kid$ event, please email your name and address to HEF Director Wendy Schregardus. Everyone is invited. Just let us know your interest. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
