WELCOME TO THE HOLMDEL FOUNDATION FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE (HFEE)

To learn more about the HFEE please check out our short overview video produced by Holmdel High School Students.

You can help maintain the stature of Holmdel Schools!

We need your support! You can help HFEE provide opportunities that the school budget is unable to cover. We do this by providing grants that enhance the educational experience for students to prepare them to meet the challenges of a highly competitive 21st century global economy.

2017 Highlights:
Thanks for everyone's support in 2017! Each of our events - the 5K, poker tournament and Battle of the Faculties  - had their best years yet! We raised more than $90,000 to fund the exciting Satz and High School Music Innovation Lab which will be ready for the 2017/8 school year, and we also funded multiple educational grants for all local schools.
 
2016 Highlights:
This was a record year for HFEE fundraising! We raised over $170,000 from generous donations and participation at our various events. HFEE was delighted to provide 324 Chromebooks with accompanying licenses and charging carts to Indian Hill school, which completed the goal of a Chromebook for every student at Indian Hill school. In addition, we supported 12 mini-grants, totaling more than $14,000. The poker tournament, Battle of the Faculties and 5K run continued their success and had terrific support from local businesses and residents. The highlight was our gala at the Navesink Country Club which was sold out with more than 260 guests!

2015 Highlights:
The HFEE has hosted two sold-out events this year: the poker tournament and Battle of the Faculties collectively raised more than $17,000! Also the inaugural HFEE 5K and kids fun run at Bell Works in May was a great success, with more than 300 people in attendance.

2014 Highlights:
With the help of local businesses, Holmdel families and employer matches, we funded a renovation of the Culinary Arts lab at Holmdel High and a new state-of-the-art digital sound system at Indian Hill. In prior years we have funded projects like the Village School Rain Garden and the High School interactive language lab. In addition, the HFEE is providing $10,000 in mini-grants for teacher and student projects at all four schools.
