In response to one of the many questions the Foundation has received regarding the critical financial situation facing the Harrisburg School District (HSD) next year, an Annual Fund has been created for contributions. Many concerned citizens have asked how they can contribute money to offset the severe deficit in the state's public school budget. The answer is through gifts to the Harrisburg Public Schools Foundation (HPSF). The Foundation operates as a means for contributions to be received, recognized and channeled to support the HSD. All gifts, at all levels are appreciated and will be handled respectfully as the contributor intended and with full public transparency.Click the title for more information.
