Letter from the President 2020-2021
Dear Friends,

Every child needs a champion. YOU – our donors, business and community leaders, and educators – are champions for endeavoring to provide each child in the Hilton Central School District with exceptional educational opportunities every day with us.

Your support insures students from Pre K-12 will have the basic tools they need to succeed in school and it guarantees that many graduating seniors who lack personal or financial support can achieve success as they continue their educational journey.

Together with Hilton Education Foundation, you are helping to shape and mold the future of the Hilton community. Our results speak volumes – our schools, students excel because we have an engaged community that is willing to devote time and money in our children’s education and future.

On behalf of the students we collectively serve throughout the year, thank you for championing education for Hilton’s young people.

Investing in Education
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.


Consider Donating Using Amazon Smile

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. If you currently shop with Amazon, please check out Amazon Smile. Merchandise is the same price for you and you still get free shipping if you have Prime, but Smile will donate 0.5% of the value of most items to the charity of your choice.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?

Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?

On your first visit to smile.amazon.com, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Search for Hilton Education Foundation. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.

HEF received $1,236.73 as of March 2021 with donors 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.
