The Humboldt Education Foundation (HEF) of Prescott Valley is proud to announce the launch of their brand-new website! You can now find out about all things HEF including the programs they support by logging into HumboldtEducationFoundation.org.
James Clemens, President of HEF states, “This is a very important social media platform for HEF because it gives us the opportunity to continue to fulfill our mission to provide community support for excellence in education and contribute to the educational experiences that impact the lives of Humboldt Unified School District students”. Bryan Earl with Prescott Web Design donated his time to build the site for HEF. The board is grateful for his contribution to helping HEF further the mission and provide a clear presence online to promote the foundation.”
The new site is beautiful and easy to use. Visitors can learn about the various programs that fall under the HEF umbrella, meet the Board Members and donate to the non-profit 501 (c)(3), which is a State of Arizona Qualifying Charitable Organization. This helps ensure our state tax dollars stay local! The site gives you the opportunity to meet the volunteer HEF board as well. One of the most dynamic pages of the site is the “Projects” page, including detailed information on the upcoming Teacher of the Year Event, the Hungry Kids Program, Teacher Grants, the annual Carm Staker Student Scholarship award, and the favorite Bear Dash 5K.
2020 Teacher of the Year
This is the time of year that HEF calls for sponsors for the Teacher of the Year to be held on March 24, 2020. Last year the organization raised enough from generous sponsors to offer one BMHS student scholarship and 12, $500 teacher grants throughout the 2019-20 school year.
“This community is so generous to teachers and students, we are so grateful to welcome back last year’s sponsors and also new businesses and community partners that want to learn how much work students put into nominating their favorite teachers,” Clemens said.
There are many ways to help the Humboldt Education Foundation with its mission. The community can donate directly to the foundation through the website, sponsor the Teacher of the Year event or by shopping at Fry’s Food store and Amazon you can designated a portion of sales be donated to the foundation. HEF is registered with Fry’s Community Rewards and the Amazon Smile program under the name Humboldt Education Foundation.
