Welcome to the Southern Hancock Education (SHEd) Foundation, one of 55 education foundations in the state. Our mission is to promote and support quality public education in Brandywine and Sugar Creek Townships. We are committed to enriching the educational experience of all students within the Community School Corporation of Southern Hancock County.
When you look at our community, consider what attracts people to New Palestine or what has kept numerous families here for multiple generations. For many, it is our great public schools. We at SHEd don’t want this to change. Historically, state and local funding has been sufficient in meeting the needs of public schools. However, in recent years decreases in funding have added financial pressure to our school system. In order to maintain the high standards that have resulted in an Indiana Department of Education letter grade of “A” for the corporation, a National Blue Ribbon School honor for our high school, and numerous 4-Star School distinctions, we as a community need to be more involved.
The SHEd Foundation needs your help. We are sensitive to the fact that the economic pressures, which have burdened our public schools, have also had a profound impact on the entire community. Yet without community support, there is no education foundation. A tax-deductible donation to the SHEd Foundation will benefit students in each of our five district schools. An equally valuable contribution is your time. As a volunteer organization, we are always looking for those willing to help with an event, serve on a committee, or develop new opportunities as a board member.
Join us in our pursuit of educational excellence.
