Innovative Learning: Teachers and Technology

This year's Fund-A-Need embraces the Hillsborough City School District's Essential Outcomes by directly empowering our teachers through investments in innovative teaching, with the creation of the HCSD Innovative Learning Mini-Grants. These Teacher-Awarded Mini-Grants will directly impact students districtwide by funding, for example, pilot programs, innovative learning tools, classroom STEAM equipment, classroom libraries as well as software and technology, and more. Additionally, HSF will commit to building out student technology ensuring that the Hillsborough City School District provides 1:1 devices for all students K-8th grade! 

  Donate to Fund-A-Need

Donations to Fund-A-Need will be used to calculate a donor's giving level for recognition in HSF's Annual Report (i.e., Fund-A-Need Donation + Annual Giving Donation = Donor Giving Level).
