Inspiring a passion for learning

The Education Foundation of Harris County funds learning programs that inspire discovery, promote creativity and problem solving, build confidence, and encourage each child to reach for the stars and envision a future beyond the classroom.

  • The Education Foundation of Harris County (EFHC) believes that every child is born with a natural desire to learn and is capable of achieving their fullest potential if they experience motivating and imaginative opportunities that reveal and encourage their unique talents.

  • Through its partnership with the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE), EFHC has funded programs impacting thousands of students throughout 25 independent school districts and cultivated a network of talented educators.

  • In addition to existing programs, EFHC develops new initiatives by providing the tools, talent and technology that engage students in original curriculum aligned for success in the 21st century.

  • EFHC funded programs are launched in Houston/Harris County; relevant to educators throughout Texas and the United States, and will soon be accessible to a worldwide audience online.
