Dear Hidden Hills Families:
On behalf of the Hidden Hills Hawks Ed Fund (HHHEF), I would like to thank all of you who supported the Hawks Education Fund during the 2018-19 school year and are continuing to support it through the 2019-2020 school year.
Your generous donations during registration and through fundraisers such as the Carnival, FunRun and the Hawktion, have helped us invest over $305,000 into our school last year and this year we plan to invest close to $340,000. Over the last 2 years, the Ed Fund has helped fund technology equipment such as iPads and chrome books,support para educators and instructional assistants to improve the learning opportunities for our students,support vocal music, chorus and instrumental music programs along with all the supplies that the students get throughout the school year.This year we have introduced a new Art Program,added more hours to our librarian’s hours and provided additional funding to school supplies per student apart from all that we have been doing over the past few years.
However, as most of you know, over the last few years, the HHHEF has seen challenging times with declining donations, much of which is related to the declining enrollment. In the last 3 - 4 years, Hidden Hills has gone from around 1200 students to 654 students. This has lead to a further decline in donations. However, the funding needs for the different programs supported by the Ed Fund continues to increase each year with increase in salaries and other costs.
What can you do?
In order for the HHHEF to continue to fund the programs that have made Hidden Hills one of the best schools not only in San Ramon, but in the state, we need YOUR support – so please make a donation. Your donation will help us raise the money needed to fulfill our budgeted goals.
This year, our suggested donation based on our budget is
$495 for one Student
$895 for two students
$1095 for three or more students or
You can further double your donation by requesting for a Corporate Match from participating employers. Corporate matching alone rasied over $50,000 last school year and was a huge help in meeting our financial goals.
Your support enables Hidden Hills to keep up the high standards in education that our families have come to expect. 100% of your donation goes towards funding programs at Hidden Hills Elementary School. HHHEF is a registered non-profit and your donation may be tax deductible (Please work with your tax/financial advisor).
Thank you once again for your support, and have a great school year ahead.
President, Hidden Hills Hawks Education Fund
