About Hillsborough Education Foundation
Our mission is to strengthen public education in Hillsborough County through advocacy, investment of resources and programs that empower every student to achieve both academic and personal success.
We Partner with Our Community
Hillsborough Education Foundation is dedicated to deepening our impact on students and teachers to ensure every student receives a high-quality education.
We are particularly focused on creating equity and leveling the playing field in our highest needs schools.
Together with our partners, we are investing in a prosperous future for our community.
Our work centers around making an impact, engaging our community to invest in education and ensuring our teachers have the necessary resources to provide all students with an equal opportunity to graduate and achieve success.
By strengthening public education, we strive to build a better community to positively impact the lives of individual teachers and students, regardless of background or economic status.
We pride ourselves in collaborating with our supporters to ensure your gifts are used in the most impactful way possible. For every dollar our partners invest, 92 cents is used directly for programs supporting teachers and students.
It is due in part to our dedication to be responsible stewards of donors’ contributions that we have earned a 4 Star Charity rating from Charity Navigator.
We partner with our community to provide resources to empower teachers to be effective leaders of change to move the needle toward the ultimate goal of every student graduating high school prepared for postsecondary, career and life success.
