Welcome to the Holmdel Foundation For Educational Excellence (HFEE)
2020-2021 Major Gift
The 2020 year has been bumpy one for many of us. HFEE canceled its gala, 5K and other events. However, we were able to run a fantastic online auction where more than 100 people bid on raffle and auction items. And we were able to provide the financial support to create the Satz Innovation Room. The Satz Innovation Room was created by transforming an old traditional woodworking shop into a cutting edge creative engineering and fabrication space. It includes state-of-the-art equipment like a laser cutter, 3D printers, robots and a vacuum former. Follow this link to learn more and see photos!
Each year HFEE supports a major project to enhance the educational experience of Holmdel students. We are thrilled to have gifted the new playground at Village School.
Play is such an integral part of the social and emotional development of our youngest learners. A new state of the art playground is a major upgrade to the playgrounds currently on-site and will be enjoyed by Village students for many years to come.
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.
The 2017/18 year was a great year for helping the school system, thanks to local parents and businesses. Our HFEE spring gala was the biggest yet, and we had a successful 5K run, poker tournament and Battle of the Faculties (The High School pulled off a shock victory!). These events and the annual giving donations have helped us fund two science labs, and a cardiovascular fitness and wellness center. These spaces opened early in the 2018/19 school year and are used daily by our Indian Hill, Satz and High School students. We also funded multiple student and teacher mini-grants across all of the schools.
How can you get involved?
Please make a fully tax-deductible donation to the HFEE on the donate page. Any level of support is greatly appreciated! Also, sign up early for events like the Gala, Poker Night and Battle of the Faculties – these were over-subscribed last year.
