Dear Harmony Parents & Guardians, here at Harmony, we are a family and we want to empower our Harmony alumni who are working hard to reach their college and career dreams.

The Harmony College Fund (HCF) was founded to support college-bound Harmony alumni through scholarships, mentoring, internships and other support services. Roughly two-thirds of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes or neighborhoods, and without these funds, many of our HCF recipients would not be financially able to complete their college and career success journeys. Please consider donating to this worthy cause.

All contributions are tax-deductible: HPS Tax ID # is 76-0615245
