Hillsboro Scholarship Fund

hillsboro-eie-logoThe Hillsboro Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to graduating seniors of Hillsboro High School.  The Fund was established in 2012 with donations from community members. The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund is led by an advisory board of Hillsboro citizens operating independently of the school district. The advisory board leads fundraising efforts and will determine the annual scholarship awards. The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund Advisory Board also serves as the advisory board to the Hillsboro Excellence in Education Fund.

How You Can Help

The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund seeks and welcomes private donations from all community-minded citizens, organizations, and businesses.

Ways to Give

Outright gifts. You may make a contribution to the Fund that is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Bequest. You can create a lasting legacy by including the Fund in your will. An estate gift allows you to make a much larger impact than might be possible during your lifetime.
Tribute. You may make a gift in honor or in memory of someone special. This is a wonderful way to thank a special teacher, remember a loved one, or thank the Hillboro School District for making a difference in the lives of our children and the community.
