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 more than $500,000 to invest in Hoover City Schools.

Over the past few years, the Foundation has been able to fund two school grants and sponsor several events for the district--the Technology Department's "Hour of Code," a week-long coding event throughout the entire district, and GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math and Science), a district-wide event for elementary school girls.
