Funding Needs

Henrico faces significant challenges, with 22 schools not fully accredited. The number of financially disadvantaged students continues to grow with 21,500 students coming from financially disadvantaged homes. Challenged schools across Henrico lack the support needed for extended learning opportunities, reading initiatives, STEM and classroom technology, thereby expanding the opportunity gap impacting student academic success. This opportunity gap is of great concern and exists across grade levels between white students, exceptional education and black students HEF's work is more important than ever as schools look for instructional strategies to foster learning. HEF has focused its efforts on solutions to address equitable access to educational programs to help every student graduate college or career ready. With your support, HEF can provide: 1) Leadership development programs; 2) Urban literacy training; 3) STEM programs and hands on learning; 4) Community Learning Centers; 5) Assistance to financially disadvantaged students ensuring every child has equal access to educational programs.
