The Indian Hill Foundation's mission is to innovate, accelerate and enrich the learning and engagement in our classrooms and beyond and strengthen the connections between the district and the community.  The Foundation achieves its purpose by building philanthropic resources in partnership with alumni, parents, students and the community.  

We have the opportunity to ask "What if?"  "What's possible?"   "What's next?" for our district and the mission to fund the answers.  Click here to learn more about our #OneBrave Annual Fund.

  • PS teachers energized by Columbia Workshop training

    teacher workshop


    How you help a program go from “pilot” to implementation…

    Thanks to your support, the Foundation was able to team up with the Primary School last school year to test the training from Columbia University Reading and Writing Workshop for PS staff to enhance their literacy instruction.  Jim Nichols, PS Principal states, “After receiving such positive feedback from staff, the district has maintained this high quality professional development in the 2018-19 school year.”  You helped innovative teacher development become a regular part of the district plan by giving it a chance to be tested.  That is bold philanthropy in action.
