The Fund's Mission
The 21st Century Fund for HVRHS is a catalyst for innovative and enriching education. Our funding and support enable students and teachers to go beyond their day-to-day experiences to find sources of knowledge, creativity and inspiration.
We are a group of educators, other professionals in the sciences and humanities, and business and community leaders, in Connecticut’s Northwest Corner, dedicated to promoting enriched educational experiences within our community.
Dreams Can Happen
The dollars entrusted to us help make the aspirations of HVRHS students, teachers and clubs possible. Donations from our generous community allow us to support new clubs; the HVRHS Robotics, Envirothon, and Electric Car teams all received seed money when they were getting started. The trips to China, Germany, Panama, Canada and New Orleans which open our youth to life beyond the NW Corner received funding. Individual students and teachers can also receive grants to pursue their unique dreams and passions.
These are just some of the accomplishments donors’ contributions have generated during our first 20 years.
With Your Support:
Our donors and volunteers are our lifeblood. Every success, or good deed we've done, is the result of their gifts, support and commitment to our shared mission - to help our community become better informed, engaged and aware.
The Mahoney-Hewat Science and Technology Center for hands-on learning is the largest project the Fund has ever undertaken. The 21st Century Fund galvanized our community, inspiring thousands of contributions in dollars, resources, and labor, to create this amazing asset for the school and region.We invite you to join us on this journey.
