The Henderson County Education Foundation

The Henderson County Education Foundation develops resources to support educational excellence in Henderson County Public Schools.

Founded in October 1986, the Henderson County Education Foundation has provided resources aimed at improving the educational experience for Henderson County students and teachers for over 30 years.

The Foundation provides scholarships for dozens of talent students to further their education each year. In addition, HCEF supports classroom teachers through programs such as the Berrian Fund for strings students, Advocate for the Arts Fund to provide additional resources for art students and teachers and the Special Fund for Children that services at-risk students in each school.
