How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Annually the Foundation obtains over $5 million in support from the community, with $0.90 of every dollar going directly to programs.  As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, the Foundation provides Hillsborough County Public Schools with funding that is typically more flexible than restricted tax dollars.  The funding and extra resources for the students, teachers, and schools helps to cover the gap that exists between what school budgets can cover, and what is needed to ensure the academic success of our students.
