HEF 2020

The Hamptons Educational Foundation Inc., is a volunteer group of retired citizens from across the United States and Canada, now living in our retirement community, The Hamptons Golf & Country Club.  We share the singular mission of improving the lives of young people through education.  We believe that education will have a long term effect on individuals and their families.  It’s our version of changing the world one person at a time.

The monies raised by the H.E.F. support the foundation’s efforts to provide assistance for further education.  We select students who have excelled in high school and have demonstrated a desire to achieve success in their lives, but have severe financial need.  All of these students have come from challenging environments, yet they have found the motivation to overcome obstacles.  Since 2009, we have supported 186 students in college and university programs with scholarships, computers and our mentor ship.

In April 2018, the H.E.F. awarded 23 new scholarships, at $3,000.00 each.  In addition, we have donated 1,000 new dictionaries to students struggling with literacy in Polk County and gave new laptops to disadvantaged scholars lacking technology.  We’ve volunteered countless hours at Polk County high schools, mentoring young adults.  The H.E.F. expects to award 23 or more new scholarships with your help in 2019.
