The Hill Country Education Foundation stimulates academic excellence for students in Austin’s Four Points community in the areas of leadership, entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through private funding.
The Foundation’s goal is to assist in developing a superior educational experience for students attending or preparing to attend Vandegrift High School, accomplished through financial support from individuals and businesses living and working in the area.
HCEF is made up of like-minded parent volunteers. The more volunteers we have, the more we can do to impact our student’s education. Depending on your time and interest, we can put your talents and experiences to great service to accomplish our mission together.
This annual event grows each year both by volunteers, attendees and money raised! It has quickly become the social event of the year for the community. Over the past four years the Giddy Up Gala has raised over $260,0000. Plan on participating in next year’s event!
