The Hendrickson High School Senior Celebration, aka Project Graduation, for the senior class of 2023 will be held on _TBD__. Senior Celebration is an alcohol & drug-free event. All current seniors are invited and encouraged to attend at no charge. The purpose of the event is to give HHS seniors a safe place to celebrate with their friends and classmates and enjoy a variety of entertainment, food, and prizes on their graduation night. The cost to host this event is between $40,000 and $50,000. We organize various fundraisers throughout the year, but in order to reach our goal, we need considerable support from our community and local businesses.
We would greatly appreciate a donation from you or your establishment to help us. The Senior Celebration Committee is part of the Hendrickson High School Hawk Foundation, and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and as such, your donation is tax deductible. All business sponsors will be acknowledged at all events hosted by Senior Celebration. There are many events that have brochures and signage at the events. Your business gets recognition for the entire year. We also support our business through all of our social media to share who has partnered with us.

Every company or foundation handles their matching program differently. Sometimes employees must fill out a company form and offer proof of the donation. Others require a mini-grant application and more specific documentation from the charity. Still others collect your contribution through periodic payroll deductions, and the total gift – including the corporate match – is sent directly to Senior Celebration 2023 aka Project Graduation by the company/foundation.
No matter the process, we are ready to help make things easy!
1. Contact your company or foundation to determine their specific steps for matching
2. Email us if you need Senior Celebration 2023 aka Project Graduation to complete a form, send a letter, or assistance.
