What We Do


The primary purpose of the NHJ Educational Foundation is to award classroom grants to Indian Creek educators. These grants enhance learning opportunities for Indian Creek students, providing them with opportunities that would not otherwise be available to them.   Past grants have included new programs, projects, technology, enrichment materials, professional development, and much more. Teachers are eligible to apply for a $500 grant each grant round, and more than $100,000 has been awarded since the foundation was created.

Raising the Funds

The NHJ Educational Foundation secures funding through individual and corporate donations, event sponsorships, and fundraising events, including:

  • Music at the Creek
  • Bingo Night
  • Monsters at the Creek
  • Extraordinary Educator

For more information on any of these events, select the Events tab on menu above.

The foundation also receives a substantial amount of funding from our Indian Creek teachers themselves! In 2019-20, over 70% of Indian Creek teachers made donations through payroll deduction!!
