               (in Affiliation with Berrien Community Foundation)
Mission
To acquire and distribute resources to the Hartford Public Schools for programs and projects enhancing or supplementing learning opportunities for students, staff and community.

About the Foundation
The Hartford Public Schools Foundation for Quality Education was created to compliment and enhance the education opportunities of students attending Hartford Public Schools. By attracting private donations, the Foundation can provide support for the development of enrichment programs and services not normally financed with ever-shrinking school funding. These "educational extras" in the form of annual Scholarships & Grants to Teachers and Students alike, make the critical difference between just a good school system and an excellent one.!

Incorporated in 1998 as a 501(c)-3 nonprofit, autonomous, tax-exempt organization, the Foundation is directed by a Board of Trustees; private citizens who serve without compensation. The trustees are committed to generating and distributing financial and other resources to the school district in a equitable manner.
Donations to the foundation are tax-deductible.

The image embodies the Foundation's synergy with the helping hands of the community supporting the school
along with the diverse student body.

Foundation President Garry Unrath commented, “We were able to provide more student support than ever before thanks to record year of fundraising so far. The Foundation has acquired several new trustees that are really dynamic individuals and great fundraisers. By creating some long-term partnerships with Gold Level Sponsors – Hartford Hardings Market, Big C Lumber, Air Tran Airlines, Mann Metal, The Fishing Hole and Never Miss Charters we are able to connect with many businesses, along with a list of individuals and Alumni that are all firmly committed to the goal of quality education. We make no apology to look you straight in the eye and ask you to give us your money to provide more grants and scholarships each year for deserving graduates!”
