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 donors 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.
