Hillcrest Elementary Hero Fund

Become a Hero Today!

The purpose of the Hillcrest Hero Fund is to supplement funds available to Hillcrest Elementary School and to improve our students' education by providing teachers with engaging tools and resources. 

The main areas of focus for Hero fundraising are Teacher Training, Classroom Materials and Foreign Language Programs & Resources.

The Hero Fund is overseen by a Board of Directors composed of parents and community members, working together with the Principal, PTA, and staff at Hillcrest Elementary School.

Together, we have set a goal to raise $10,000 for the 2022-2023 school year.  It is our belief we can accomplish this by the end of the school year.  If all our pledges are collected and our combined efforts are realized, teachers and staff can continue to educate students with extraordinary learning programs, tools, and resources.

Contributions to the Hillcrest Hero Fund can be made at any time to Hillcrest Elementary School and will be tax deductible. The Fund can receive gifts via cash, check (payable to FOCPS) or credit card, in one payment or multiple installments throughout the school year. Checks should be mailed to the Foundation for Orange County Public Schools, 445 West Amelia Street, Orlando, FL. 32801 and in the Memo line place Hillcrest Hero Fund.

The Hillcrest Hero Fund will maintain a segregated account at the Foundation for Orange County Public Schools, available only for Hillcrest Elementary School; it will be tax deductible as a contribution to a 501c3 organization with transparency and full disclosure.
