About Us

Every great structure begins with a solid foundation...

Our award-winning schools are no different. The Hillsborough Schools Foundation helps to ensure your child has access to a world-class education in an inspiring and nurturing environment.

Who would have believed in 1980 that the newly formed Hillsborough Schools Foundation (HSF) would be such a success, becoming a crucial part of the Hillsborough City School District’s (HCSD) funding?  In the past 33 years, HSF raised over $45 million for the Hillsborough schools.

HSF was one of the first nonprofit public school foundations in the country, a leader in the movement to secure private funding for public schools. For 34 years, the parents and neighbors of Hillsborough have supported HSF, creating one of the most successful public school foundations in the nation, supporting all areas of our schools’ curriculum.

Last year, we raised over $3.5 million providing critical funding for the educational excellence we expect in Hillsborough. Together, we have pioneered a new approach to public education by making our children and their futures a key priority in our community.

While our community is donating dollars for our schools through the Annual Giving Campaign, we are also participating in HSF Events, which raise substantial revenue through exciting community activities and events. Each fall, HSF Events sponsors the Hillsborough Classic (tennis tournament and luncheon), followed in the winter by the Dinner Dance and Auction.  We close our school year with Family Fun Runin June, a great community-building affair. Our school year is packed with wonderful events and fundraising, and HSF appreciates the enormous commitment of our families to support excellence in our Hillsborough schools.

Your Pledges, Attendance at events, Volunteering, and Enrolling online make it possible to continue Hillsborough’s tradition of excellence in education. Thank you for your generous support through the years!
