The Education Foundation

The HBA administers the Associations charitable 50lc3 organization, The Hilton Head Home Builders Education Foundation. The foundation raises funds each year through contributions made by Association members as well as others within the community.

As tuition costs rise we are faced with the challenge of not only increasing the amount of the scholarships we award but also the number of recipients who receive them.2019 has marked another HUGE accomplishment for our commillee, which is made up of just 15 members including HBA Staff.Since 1992 when the association awarded its first official scholarships, we have raised our efforts 300% from 5 scholarships at $1500 each to 11 scholarships at $4000 each. Our Association has given away over $350,000 on behalf of our Education Foundation.

We received a record number of over 40 applications this year from 15 different area high schools spanning all 3 counties we represent. It is without question that the task of narrowing that number down 10 just 11 recipients was NO easy feat.

Our mission is to fund and sustain an endowment, which provides continuing education scholarships to high school graduates of the Lowcounlry for their academic performance,demonslrated leadership, financial need, and commitment 10 community.
