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 $24,000 in new grants during the 2016-17 school year. Since our founding in 1984, the foundation has awarded over $761,000 in grant support to the teachers and staff of Holland Public Schools.

Fundraising Efforts

Each year, HEF raises funds through spring/summer and end-of-the-year letter campaigns. We also occasionally sponsor fundraising events - please check here for the latest details. In addition, we participate with AmazonSmile. Click on the links below for more information or to sign up. Contact Wendy Schregardus with questions.


Donations to HEF are tax deductible. If your company has a matching-funds program, please enclose paperwork and double your support. You may also make your donation to the Holland/Zeeland Community Foundation, earmarked to the HEF Endowment or Founding Fund.
