Help us reach our fundraising goal of $50,000 so more of our Hayward teachers can create excellence in their classrooms and capture students’ imaginations. “Spring into Excellence" is our call to the many businesses and community leaders, like yourself, who know the benefits and rewards from receiving a quality education. 

We will be hosting an online auction in lieu of our in person fundraising event. Items will be available for bidding from 5pm Friday, September 11th until 10pm Saturday, September 12th. Join our mailing list to get the latest news and updates for the exciting auction!

The Hayward Education Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2020-2021 HEF Classroom Projects Program and the COVID-19 Addendum funding. 

Awards up to $1,000 are available to individual teachers for innovative and creative classroom projects which enhance the learning experience of Hayward students. Funding is provided through a competitive bidding process usually announced at the beginning of the school year. All teachers who are employed at schools in Hayward (Public, Private, Charter etc.) are eligible and encouraged to submit a classroom project for funding.

For this funding year, we have added a COVID-19 Addendum. This additional funding has been allocated to HELP SUPPORT TEACHERS and students adapt to the unique circumstances and new challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Awards up to $800 are available to individual teachers to help with distance/remote learning and the transition period for the 2020-2021 school year. It is our goal to offer help and support to online classrooms in ways that the district cannot. 

Applicants may apply for both funding options but must submit the respective applications. Applications that have joint funding requests, will not be accepted. 

Thank you to our sponsors
