How You Can Help

The Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. It relies on the hard work of its members and the generosity of the community to meet its goals. If you can share your time or talents, we have many suggestions for ways you can help the students and teachers in our neighborhood. Should you wish to offer financial support, it is deductible to the extent applicable by law. Our Tax ID number is 46-3074747.

Your support of us makes possible our support of the students, teachers, and administrators of the Cluster. We are currently seeking volunteers, donators, and sponsors for our Henry Cluster Mini Golf Challenge this upcoming April; please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form if you would like more information about that.

We are grateful for your help.

As a Parent
Parents are essential allies in our efforts to kindle children’s interest in STEMM subjects. If you are a Cluster parent who would like to help our Foundation, consider the following suggestions:

  • Serve as a Point of Contact between the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation and other parents at your school
  • Send us ideas for HC STEMM projects
  • Join a Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation committee or donate time to assist with an event or project
  • Be enthusiastic about STEMM fields and subjects at home
  • Attend and support STEMM events

As an Educator or Administrator
Cluster educators and administrators are in the best position to expose students to STEMM concepts and to explore with them how a STEMM education can help them in their lives. We ask our teachers and administrators to let us know how we can help them enhance their STEMM curriculum:

  • Serve as a Point of Contact between the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation and other educators at your school
  • Send us ideas for HC STEMM projects
  • Be enthusiastic about STEMM in the classroom
  • Talk to other administrators and teachers about STEMM projects and events

As a Business or Community Partner
Our local businesses and partners understand how students who graduate with strong STEMM skills improve the lives of everyone in the community, and can advise us on what STEMM topics might be of particular use or interest to the students in our Cluster.

  • Serve as a Point of Contact between the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation and your professional organizations and memberships
  • Send us ideas for HC STEMM projects
  • Fund an ongoing Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation project
  • Help underwrite the Foundations general operations

As a Business or Community Sponsor
Our business and community sponsors can directly help students by making it easier for our Foundation to provide our schools with STEMM learning materials and enriching STEMM experiences. We ask for their help in the following ways:

  • Send us ideas for STEMM projects
  • Sponsor one of these items:
  • Printing brochures or flyers
  • Attendance at a Foundation STEMM event

As a STEMM Careerist
STEMM careerists are probably the best experts on putting a STEMM education to real-world use, and identifying ways that STEMM educational programs could be fleshed out or improved. We hope to gain from their knowledge:

  • Send us ideas for HC STEMM projects
  • Join a Foundation committee to plan STEMM events or donate your time to implement one
  • Speak to students about your STEMM career
  • Advise the Henry Cluster STEMM Foundation about how we can help students achieve more in STEMM fields
  • Advise the Foundation about how we can help students prepare to work in your field

Please let us know if you have any other ideas for how we can work together to improve our students’ understanding of and appreciation for science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and music! The more people we can dedicate to this task, the more we can accomplish. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
