The Boone Hope Foundation is the only teacher-led charitable foundation of its kind, according to the National School Foundation.

 In the fall of 2005, an in-service session on poverty prompted employees of the Boone School District to try to make a      difference in the lives of Boone students and the community. In early December, to raise funds to help, Boone schools  employees served desserts, entertained, and provided baskets for a silent auction at the first Festival of Hope at the  Boone County Hospital.

 As a result of strong public support, the employees formed the Boone Hope Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit tax-exempt  organization that provides one-time assistance to students and their families in time of need or emergency.  The Boone  Hope Foundation services the students of Boone Community, Sacred Heart, and Trinity Lutheran Schools.

 The festival tradition continues this year as we host the 13th Annual Festival of Hope at the Boone High  School Commons. Please join us to celebrate a day of community pride and holiday spirit! 




Thank You!


 Believe in Hope! That was the simple request we made and we are humbled by your response.  In the  month of December, you helped us raise $51,294.72.  Amazing!  Funds were raised as a result of another  successful Festival of Hope on December 2nd and your generous donations.  


 The needs of our students and their families did not decrease in 2017.  The Hope Foundation  provided $59,617.69 in assistance to 114 families (216 identified children). The lives of these families were  made a little less stressful because of your commitment to making a difference in the lives of our students. 


Forever Grateful,


  The Boone Hope Foundation
