Hammond Education Foundation‚Äč

Every child in Hammond deserves access to a quality public education.

 

In order to make that vision a reality in the School City of Hammond, a district where a majority of the students are enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program, we must recruit, train, and retain the very best educators. We believe that an empowered teaching force is the lever in addressing the very real gaps affecting our school district and community.  Our investments reflect that belief.
