What is the Hearst Foundation?

The Phoebe Hearst Elementary School Foundation (PHESF) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with 12 Hearst parent volunteer board members.

What and when is the Hearst Foundation Dinner Auction?

The annual dinner auction is the Foundation's only fundraiser for the school. All parents and friends of the school are invited to attend and bid on silent auction packages, beautiful classroom artwork, incredible live auction items and opportunity drawings to help raise funds for our various school needs. 100 percent of all funds raised go directly back to our school.

Annual Hearst Foundation Auction Dinner -- SAVE THE DATE!

2022 Date coming soon!

How much money was raised at last year's auction?

Thanks to the generous support of the Hearst community, over $65,000 was raised at the annual fundraiser in 2020.

How will the money be spent to benefit Hearst students?

Items that are funded for the school year includes:

  • South African percussion for TK-1st grade provided by the Center for World Music
  • Ukulele instruction for grades 2-4 provided by the Center for World Music
  • Edudance ballroom dancing instruction for 4th and 5th grade students
  • Educational magazine subscriptions for the classrooms
  • Covered the loss in supply budget funds, dispersed to the school by the district

What ways can Hearst families help?

There are several ways to help the PHESF support Hearst. We need donations to make the dinner auction a reality. Each classroom needs a coordinator to help gather donations for the classroom baskets for the silent auction and help the students create class artwork. Volunteers are needed to help set up for the dinner auction and to help on the night of the event. Most importantly, parents and community members are encouraged to attend the auction to help raise funds to continue making Hearst Elementary an excellent school!
