The Humboldt Education Foundation (HEF) offers classroom grants each school year. The grant application requires the applicant to include a description of the project needing funding, the number of students that will benefit from the grant, and the amount the teacher is requesting. This opportunity helps further the mission of HEF, which is to provide community support for excellence in education and contribute to the educational experiences that impact the lives of students.

  • HEF commits funds each year for teacher grants in Q2, Q3, and Q4
  • This grant is open to all HUSD teachers.
  • The link to the grant application is sent out via district-wide email.
  • The funds are proceeds from the annual Teacher of the Year event and generous sponsors.

Teacher of the Year
The Humboldt Education Foundation is presenting the Teacher of the Year celebration at the Prescott Resort on March 27th. Nominated by the students, teachers from each school in the HUSD will be recognized and two will be selected as Teachers of the Year.
Hungry Kids Project
Inspired by board member Carm Staker, the founder of the Hungry Kids Project, we serve the children in the Humboldt Unified School District that have been recommended by school staff as those who may not have access to adequate weekend meals. Students are provided enough food for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners over the weekend.
Scholarships and Grants
As HEF continues to grow, we are pleased to now offer teacher mini-grants to help support classroom projects and also help to support student scholarships for those in need to further their education after high school.
