About EFHC

  • The Education Foundation of Harris County (EFHC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that funds learning programs that inspire discovery, promote creativity and problem-solving, build confidence, and encourage each child to reach for the stars and envision a future beyond the classroom.

    EFHC believes every child is born with a natural desire to learn and can achieve their fullest potential if they experience motivating and imaginative opportunities that reveal and encourage their unique talents.

    Through its partnership with the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE), EFHC has funded programs impacting thousands of students throughout 25 independent school districts and cultivated a network of talented educators.

    In addition to existing programs, EFHC develops new initiatives by providing the tools, talent, and technology that engage students in original curricula aligned for success in the 21st Century.

    EFHC also directly supports Harris County students and educators through district sponsorships, innovative campus grants, teacher school supplies for the classroom, and graduating student scholarships. Thank you for helping us meet the needs across the county.

    EFHC funding supports programs in greater Harris County.
