Hardin County Educational Fund

The Hardin County Educational Fund provides supplementary classroom resources to enhance student learning in Hardin County Schools (HCS). The Fund offers several ways for people to support the school. Alumni, parents and friends of HCS have a tax-deductible way to support the educational efforts of HCS through the Fund. Some donors choose to make a one-time gift, while others make regular gifts to the Fund. Gifts to the fund are a great way to honor a special teacher or alumni. To give to the Hardin County Educational Fund contact Davette B. Swiney at 270-737-8393 or dswiney@ckcf4people.org.

Partnership Grants

Partnership Grants through the Hardin County Educational Fund provide supplemental resources for Hardin County School teachers to expand educational experiences and increase student engagement. Hardin County School faculty and staff have the opportunity to invest in the school system through payroll deduction. 100% of the funds contributed to the Hardin County Schools Fund through payroll deduction go to the Partnership Grant Program. Grants are available to teachers for classroom enhancement to increase student learning.

Teachers can apply for grants at any time and are awarded throughout the year.

Grant Guidelines:

  • Grants will be made up to $500.
  • Grant recipients will be required to report follow-up outcomes.
