Homer Education Foundation Deanne Stafford Volleyball Tournament

Saturday, January 27, 2018 - Homer Junior High School Gym - 7:00pm - 11:00pm

Grab your friends, family, co-workers, teamates or club buddies together! Register a team of 6-8 people to participate!! It is a fun and friendly competition. This event is appropriate for both competitive and recreational teams. All are welcome! Sign up by 1/21!

This event is dedicated to Deanne Stafford who was a 2010 Homer High School graduate and senior member of the 2010 Homer OHSL League Champion Varsity Volleyball team. She was a spirited Homer student. She was a Scholar Athlete, and she was active in many extra-curricular activities within the Homer/Cortland area with her friends, participating on a number of recreational sports teams and working for local charities. The proceeds of this tournament supply scholarships for students graduating from Homer and provide supplement to activities for students of the school district. 

On August 23, 2014, Deanne died unexpectedly from sudden cardiac arrhythmia. It is a staggering fact that each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease. Deanne has given us new meaning to February Heart Health Month-and Go Red for Women! It is through this tournament that we kick off Heart Health Month and celebrate her life and community she loved. If you are not able to participate in the tournament, donations or other forms of sponsorship are gladly accepted. Please use Event Brite or see the Homer Education Foundation weblink below. Cost is $75.00 per team with 6-8 players. 

Join us for this fun filled time!!

Monday, June 25th 2018 - HEF 11th Annual Golf Classic Tournament at the Cortland Country Club

The Homer Education Foundation would like to thank everyone for a great 2017. Please sent grant requests to us, contact information is below.

The Homer Education Foundation has partnered with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to send books directly to preschool age children in the Homer Central School District. Each month, participating children receive a book delivered directly to their home. We believe we can foster a love of reading, strengthen family-child relationships, and contribute to a foundation of school readiness with this simple but powerful gesture.

For every $1 we contribute to postage--our financial part of the literacy partnership--the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Foundation matches with about $5 on a book. You can help us reach our goal of enrolling 100% of the eligible children in the Homer District by contributing to the HEF.

We want all of Homer's youngest children, from birth to five years old, to be among the lucky boys and girls who receive the gift of books, delivered free of charge, to their home each month.

For more information, contact the Instruction Office at (607) 749-1206.

This academic year the foundation has given approximately $10,000 to the teachers & staff for programs for students.  There are no administration costs to the Foundation and therefore 100% of your dollars have a direct impact.   We are happy for the support of the community and ask that you come and participate in our events thank you.

If you have any questions about donating to the Homer Education Foundation or if you would like a donation form sent to you, please contact Matt Neuman at (315) 727-0291 or via e-mail at matt.neuman.rss@gmail.com or mail to: PO Box 174 Homer NY 13077
