Message from the Haverford Education Foundation:

Staff Tributes Make A Perfect Gift

No shopping; no wrapping; no searching for the right gift for your child’s teacher, coach, or a special staff member at school.

This holiday season, please consider a Staff Tribute to the HTSD Education Foundation as a gift to thank a teacher, coach, nurse, principal, secretary, aide, bus driver or any staff member at your student’s school. It’s a gift that will benefit many because it is an investment in education.

You can purchase tribute online (pay with PayPal); after typing in your information on the donations page, choose Staff Tribute from the “My gift is a …” list.  If you wish to pay with a check through the mail download the Staff Tribute form.

Monies raised through the tribute program pay for mini-grants that support innovation in our schools.
