Donations to the HRCEF support teachers and students. The foundation provides more than 60 college scholarships annually for local students, and over $10,000 annually in grants to teachers for innovative projects. One focus of the new HRCEF Opportunity Campaign is support for middle schools sports and activities by providing scholarships to students who can’t afford participation fees.
