OUR IMPACT

See what we've accomplished so far:

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.
