Hawthorne Education Foundation
Welcome to the home page for the Hawthorne Education Foundation

The Hawthorne Education Foundation was founded with the hope of nourishing and strengthening both the quality of Hawthorne’s public education system and the vitality of the community it serves. Through the use of private resources and fundraisers the Foundation is committed to supplementing the educational opportunities available to our children in the public schools. To this end, the Hawthorne Education Foundation recognizes the importance of scholastic enrichment beyond the opportunities within the core curriculum and strives to provide technology funding to enable our teachers to prepare our children for the workplace in the 21st century; professional development for teachers and administrators to pursue professional training not otherwise provided through traditional resources; opportunities for cross-cultural appreciation so that our children may be enriched by, and prepared for an increasingly interactive global community. The Hawthorne Education Foundation further recognizes that experiences in the Fine and Performing Arts will promote and enhance lifelong enrichment and enjoyment of the Arts for students, faculty and the community at large.


The Hawthorne Education Foundation operates independently from the public school district for the sole purpose of enhancing its students education experience.  Foundation Trustees are corporate and community leaders who have donated their time and talents promoting the mission of the Foundation. Through your support the Hawthorne Education Foundation can become a vehicle of empowerment for our students, our teachers, our public schools and our Community.


Your contribution could make a world of difference…so our children can make a difference in theirs.
