As a IRS aproved charity organization, the transparency of the process is our priority. It is an absolute privilege to have earned our donors' trust throughout these years. We will update our financial balance and yearly summary periodically.

Yearly Summary

We will also be very pleased to give a summary every year. In this way you can have a general idea of how many needy students have been helped by your generous donation every year. Please see the details on Yearly Summary page

Financial Balance

We will record the funds that we recieved and the funds that we sent to the students. Please see the details on balance page.



We appreciate any donation you contribute to this small and very useful charity; we will work hard to make sure that your contributions are used in the most effecicient manner to help the most children possible. Your contribution will make a big impact on young lives, for example a mere $80 (600 Yuan RMB) dollars can help an elementary student for an entire year, $100+ (800 Yuan RMB)can help a middle school student for an entire year, and $200 (1200 Yuan RMB)can help a high school student for an entire year.

Please make your donation by writing a check payable to The Hometown Education Foundation (HEF), and send it to

You are more than welcome to use Paypal or Credit Card (left) to make a donation. We will update the donor list on the web periodically (together with donation amount) to show our appreciation of your generous help and the openness of the process. If you prefer to keep your donation anonymous, please let us know. We will keep it that way.

If you prefer personal contact, we can make arrangements for you to sponsor one or more students. We hope this will bring you even more personal satisfaction by seeing, first hand, how much of a difference your contribution makes. Here is your suggested annual contribution:

$80+ to sponsor an elementary school student for a year (600 Yuan RMB),

$100+ to sponsor a middle school student for a year (800 Yuan RMB), and

$200 to sponsor a high school student for a year (1200 Yuan RMB).

It is simple, just email me ( and let me know how many kids you would like to sponsor and what , if any, preference you have on students. We will ask the student(s) to write one letter (usually around Chinese New Year) to you and we also collect one transcript to you once a year. You are more than welcome to communicate with them direclty although unnecessary. Your communication is an extra inspiration and encouragement to them.

Again your help is greatly appreciated and will make a huge impact on the needy young lives. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me at or (608)770-3229.
