How The HCB Fund Works
The HCB Endowment Fund is set up with the Cottage Grove Community Foundation and the Oregon Community Foundation. The money raised will be managed by OCF for the long term to maximize the impact of your gift. The fund will continue to grow over time, preserving and maximizing the HCB Endowment Fund for years to come.
South Lane School District
The HCB Endowment Fund will work directly with South Lane School District and other local youth organizations to disperse the funds and ensure they are going directly to participation fees.
The students are the beneficiaries of HCB fund. They get to participate in sports activities supported by the fund. They get to grow their character and learn new skills to benefit the community.
The ultimate goal is to raise enough money to make playing sports free for all students going to school in Cottage Grove. While we anticipate this may take some time to achieve we will start working now with the school district to figure out how to reduce participation fees for middle school and high school students.

About HCB Fund Mission
The HCB Endowment started with Heather’s vision of making sure all children have access to be their best with the support of their community and the structure and of extracurricular activities. As a swimming and water polo coach Heather grew up knowing the value of sports activities to enrich and help kids learn life lessons as team members.
