This week my guest is Tracy Klicka MacKillop, director of development at HSLDA’s Home School Foundation. Tracy, it’s sure good to have you with us again.
Tracy Klicka MacKillop:
Thank you, Mike. I’m thrilled to be back, sharing about what we do at HSF.
Well, Tracy, would you share with our listeners the purpose of the Foundation and how it’s actually connected to HSLDA?
I would love to, Mike. You know, not everyone knows just how closely related these two organizations are. The Home School Foundation was actually started by HSLDA in 1994 as a nonprofit organization, originally to help other homeschool groups. God expanded HSLDA’s vision, however, to include needy families within the homeschool community. As the charitable arm of HSLDA, the Home School Foundation provides assistance to families who are facing any number of hardships. We do this through a family of funds which are supplied by the generous gifts of others. We know HSLDA loves helping homeschoolers, and we like to think of the Home School Foundation as the heart of HSLDA.
Well, thank you for that information today, Tracy. Now, next time, we’ll hear ways the Home School Foundation has actually blessed homeschool families. But, until then, I’m Mike Smith.
