District Grants

As traditional funding sources for our schools become more limited, the Foundation believes it can play a greater role in district funding with the involvement of the Hoover community. If every family donated just $36 per student ($1 per academic week), the Foundation would have over $500,000 to invest in Hoover City Schools.

In addition to two School Grants which were funded in 2015, the Foundation was able to sponsor two events for the district. In December 2015, the Foundation was a sponsor of the Technology Department’s “Hour of Code” which is a week-long coding event throughout the entire district. In January 2016, the Foundation was able to help sponsor GEMS (Girls in Engineering Math and Science), a district-wide event for elementary school girls.
