The mission of the Red Hook Education Foundation is to enhance public education for students in our community by funding programs that promote equity and inspire excellence.
Strong Schools are the Heart of Our Community
RHEF was founded on the belief that our schools are our community’s greatest asset. RHEF was created to develop a mechanism for parents and community members to raise the necessary funds to support education programs that promote equity and inspire excellence for generations to come. Starting with a small group of concerned community members in 2010, RHEF has developed into a cohesive non-profit organization that is committed to building a meaningful and sustainable foundation that is mission driven and actively supported by the community and school district.
Thanks to our generous community, RHEF has raised over $400,000 to support programs that promote equity and inspire excellence. This funding has been used as seed money to implement new education programs, purchase equipment, and support new initiatives serving K-12 students. Together we can bring new opportunities to Red Hook students that ignite innovation and a love of learning. As RHEF grows we will continue to keep our eye focused on strengthening one of our community’s greatest assets – our schools and the children they serve.
Run by a volunteer board, the Red Hook Education Foundation is a 501c3, independently operated public charity.
