BE A FRIEND!

Our Success Is Your Success...

Walkathon

The Friends of Hendricks (FOH) is a group of parents, teachers and volunteers that raises funds for resources and projects that the Duval County School Board budget does not cover. In the past, we have funded faculty positions, capital projects, playground equipment, school educational software, teacher grants and classroom supplies. We work with local business partners, Hendricks families and foundations to raise money to help all students at Hendricks Avenue Elementary School have an exemplary education.

 

The Friends of Hendricks works together with the PTA, but we differ in our focus.

FOH is a 501(c)(3) fundraising organization that raises money to address budget shortfalls and to increase discretionary spending for academic enhancement projects. We raise money through the annual Walkathon, Business Partner Sponsorships, Hugs with Henry Birthday Club, Spirit Nights, and Chance Drawings. The money raised by friends goes back to the school in the form of financial grants. The PTA is a membership organization that provides student enrichment programs, teacher appreciation events, and activities to increase family engagement. The PTA raises money through memberships and a Fall fundraiser activity. We work alongside the PTA to make Hendricks the best it can be.

 


Please consider supporting FOH! Because of the generous support of families and Business Partners in 2019-2020, The Friends of Hendricks was able to award more than $34,000 in grants to Hendricks Avenue Elementary School. Grants to the school included funding for Reflex Math, classroom resources/hands-on materials, general school supplies/administrative needs, teacher professional development and Leader In Me teacher training and membership. All gifts, no matter how large or small, had a meaningful impact because YOU became invested in the education and enrichment of every child, faculty, and staff member. Thank you for the support!
