Why Invest

in the Holmes County Education Foundation (HCEF)?


Because we are unique. 

As the only stand-alone, county-wide education foundation in Ohio, the HCEF impacts the life and future of the traditional Holmes County student and that young person’s family.  We open doors of opportunity for higher education by providing traditional and adult students Scholarships.  Many of our traditional scholarship recipients are the first person ever from their family to attend college.   

Because we go beyond tradition…  

Serving the non-traditional student, we open doors of opportunity for enrichment and life-long learning through our Professional Development Grant.

…while respecting its preservation through community.

Desiring to serve ALL the people of our community, we open doors of opportunity for further learning and skills through our Amish Vocational Training program.


By investing in HCEF, you are helping us make a broader and deeper impact upon countless more students as they pursue their hopes and dreams.  By investing in HCEF, your return will include seeing them make their hopes and dreams reality… and the world a better place.

Here are some doors of opportunity for you to invest in the cause—
