Spring Hill Education Foundation

MissionSHEF Circle Logo

Enhancing the educational opportunities for students, staff and patrons of the Spring Hill School District. 


Excellence in the classroom and beyond.


In 1993, it was the vision of Dr. Barton Goering to develop the Spring Hill Education Foundation ‘for the kids’. With the support of school board members and initial donations from patrons and businesses in the community, the Foundation partnered with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation to provide scholarships to Spring Hill High School graduates. In December 2016, the Foundation was designated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  


  • Provide multiple scholarships, awarded each year to graduating seniors. The scholarships are evaluated heavily on community service and activities.
  • Supplement educational needs of the district not provided for within state and federally funded guidelines.
  • Continue to grow the Foundation as the needs of the District grow.

The Spring Hill Education Foundation is grateful for the contributions made by patrons and businesses in our community. Without these donors, our goals could not be reached. The Foundation relies heavily on the volunteer participation of our community business members who faithfully support and enrich the program and we are thankful for each and every one of those individuals.
