Letter from the President 2022
Dear Friends,

Are you looking for a way to support the students of Hilton Central School?  The Hilton Education Foundation’s focus is to provide the funding for additional opportunities to enrich the student’s experience.

Your donations will help students and teachers who strive to go the extra mile in learning and educating.  By contributing to Experiential Education opportunities such as field trips, or funding programs such as the Cadet Cupboard, the Foundation tries to support all students.

Every child needs a champion.  You can join our donors, business and community leaders, and educators in being champions for the children in the Hilton Central School District.


Peter Miles
President, HEF


Corporate Matching Funds

Please check to see if your employer offers a company match for charitable organizations that can essentially double the donation a non-profit receives.   From 2013 to 2021 HEF has received $22,380 from this. This year alone $6,820.


Amazon Smile

On January 18th, 2023 Amazon announced that it will be discontinuing AmazonSmile for all organizations effective February 20th, 2023. Amazon said it would continue to support the thousands of charities across the US in different ways.

We would like to thank everyone who supported the Hilton Education Foundation over the years through AmazonSmile donations. Since the beginning HEF received $2,638.70 as of March 2023 with donations using Amazon Smile.


Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. No one in the organization is paid...we're all volunteers who believe in the students of the Hilton schools. Volunteers are always needed to help with mailings, take pictures at events, and help with our annual "Comedy Night Under the Stars" fundraising event. Volunteers run the events, raise the money, publicize our programs, and give us our drive and focus.
