Please consider making a donation to the Helena Education Foundation through HEF for the Holidays— in the name of your child’s educator, bus driver, cafeteria worker, principal, coach, para or others OR your favorite educator when you attended school. Make a gift and download the certificate to present to the educator you selected. We will post honorary donations in our annual Donor Roll that appears in the Independent Record in May.

At HEF we honor, celebrate and support educators in our schools in a variety of ways. Through Let’s Talk About Great Teachers, we highlight exceptional educators during our Great Conversations event. We award $55,000 annually in Great Ideas Grants and Spark Grants to educators for innovative in-class projects and field trips. We also feature Distinguished Educators at Celebration of Excellence.

We help educators help students.  Show your appreciation for your child’s educator and support HEF at the same time.
