OUR IMPACT SINCE 2014

Formally founded in January of 1989, the Hispanic Education Foundation dedicated itself to raising funds for scholarships to be awarded to graduates of any school in the St. Vrain Valley School District. That first year, they raised $500 - enough to award one scholarship.  Now see how far we've come. 

GET INVOLVED

We are always looking for volunteers to help our students reach their potential.  Join HEF Longmont to support our students and the community.
