About Us

O U R   M I S S I O N

To bless homeschoolers and the cause of homeschooling.

O U R   V I S I O N

To be a tool increasingly used by God both to address the financial hardships that hinder families from homeschooling and to bless the homeschool community.


The Home School Foundation is the charitable arm of Home School Legal Defense Association. It was founded by HSLDA  in 1994 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) with the original focus of helping other homeschool groups. God has since expanded our vision, however, to include needy families within the homeschool community. These two organizations are very closely tied in their mission to help and support the homeschool community.

We help families through several funds as well as provide grants to homeschool groups within the United States and internationally. In the last fiscal year, the Home School Foundation raised over $2 million dollars, of which 91% was used to help hurting homeschool families, coordinate services to them, and defend homeschool freedoms.

All donations to the Foundation are from private sources with most coming from individuals. We do occasionally receive funding from private foundations, but we receive no public funds.

The Home School Foundation is located in Purcellville, Virginia, and every year helps hundreds of families continue homeschooling through hard times.
