H-F Foundation

The Homewood-Flossmoor High School Foundation was founded in 1982 and subsequently incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1984. Since that time, the Foundation has worked to enhance the school experience by funding programs to help students maintain the competitive edge inside and outside the classroom.

While its first priority is the funding of grant applications from the staff and students at H-F, the Foundation also continues to maintain and distribute a number of scholarships held in its care as well as accounts for the benefit of other organizations such as a particular class reunion or fundraising for a targeted project (i.e. Auditorium renovation).

Funding for the H-F Foundation is based on a combination of fundraising activities and donations from the community at large – parents, alumnae and friends. The Foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization and any donation is therefore tax deductible.

All donations will be recognized with an official letter noting our tax exempt status. You can donate cash, stock, or gifts of equipment or supplies. We encourage consideration of pledge gifts reflecting a desire to contribute on a regular schedule.

The Foundation has provided more than $225,000 in support. Some examples of this support include:
