The Husky Education Fund supports educational activities of the Harrison Hills City School District. This Fund will serve as a permanent vehicle for alumni, friends and supporters of academic excellence to provide contributions outside traditional funding sources, to ensure permanent resources for programs and activities that enhance and enrich the educational experience of students and teachers. Gifts to the Fund will enrich the academic and cultural opportunities available to students and educators, by providing support for enhanced educational programs and activities, resources for field trips, scholarships and other opportunities.

The Fund is governed by an Advisory Committee who will recommend grant awards from the Fund based on grant applications submitted from within the district. The Advisory Committee consists of Todd Dunlap, Joyce Lannum, Kris Puskarich, Mike Sliva and Sandi Thompson.
