The NHJ Educational Foundation awards classroom grants to enhance learning opportunities for Indian Creek students and provide them with opportunities that would not otherwise be available to them. Past grants have included new programs, projects, technology, enrichment materials, and professional development. Teachers are eligible to apply for a $500 grant each grant round. More than $100,000 has been awarded since the foundation was created.

Did you know that you can make a donation to the NHJ Educational Foundation in honor or memory of someone you admire? When you make a donation online, simply select “this gift is an honor/memorial gift” on the online form and you will be prompted to provide the appropriate information. The person who you are honoring with your gift (or contact, if the gift is made in memory) will receive notification that a gift was made in their name.

Indian Creek Schools

In August 2011, a small group of citizens conceived the idea of forming an independent foundation for the purpose of privately funding activities aimed at enriching the educational experience of students. We believe our children are our future and building a solid academic foundation is key to their success. 

The timing of our initiative could not have been better, with the ongoing budget cuts placed upon the schools and the increased standards for students and teachers. Programs and activities that the schools previously financed are being left behind in the effort to be financially sound. These changes will alter our students' education. As a foundation, we aim to build communication within our community and raise awareness of our school needs while improving academic and educational opportunities.

We welcome new board members, committee volunteers, and any other member of our Indian Creek community who is interested in enriching our students’ educations. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to volunteer, please reach out to any of our board officers.
