Established in 1987, the Hancock Public
Schools Foundation receives and distributes funds for charitable
and educational activities that assist in the development,
implementation or maintenance of programs that significantly
contribute to the education of Hancock Public Schools students.
The Foundation is a registered IRS 501 (c )(3) organization. All
contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Focus on Funding
Did you know?
The Foundation awards $30,000 in
scholarships annually to graduating seniors. This applies to
both college-bound students and those pursuing a trade.
Up to $90,000 is applied to grants
that support classroom learning in all three schools in all
disciplines, and upgrades to technology that provide the
best available tools.
The Board of Directors is comprised
of volunteers who care deeply about our students and their
learning opportunities. The Board meets quarterly to
consider grant requests. Are you interested? Contact
Executive Director Sara Niemeyer at
