Hainesport Township Education Foundation, Inc.

The Hainesport Twp. Education Foundation, commonly known as "HEF" is a non-profit school-business partnership overseen by a volunteer board of trustees.

We operate exclusively under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Our goal is to raise funds for capital improvements that will directly impact the educational experience of Hainesport School students. We work directly with the school administration, the school board, PTO, the township committee as well as the community as a whole to provide capital improvements to the Hainesport School District.



HEF’s mission is to improve and maintain the quality of our community through addressing the needs of our school.


In the past, we purchased the following for the school:    

  • Chrome Books                                                                                                                                                                              
  • SMART Boards
  • Class response clickers 
  • Mobile computer lab 
  • Security system
  • a new wireless Score Board for the School Gym. PLEASE see photos on separate tab.

Different from most campaigns, we also brokered a means for obtaining team uniforms for both the boys & girls school soccer teams. A Special Thanks to Ewing Sports! Go Hawks! PLEASE Check out the pics!

We look forward to continue working with our town's families, businesses, the new administration, school board and township to continue to grow our students, school and community.


At the end of each year at graduation, HEF also awards a certificate and scholarship to a graduating 8th grade boy and girl. The requirements of this award and a list of the honored students may be found in a separate page.


Our motto: Great schools make Great communities.
