Help Support our Mission

Your contribution will not only help support our bilingual enrichment After-School Program but will support the Rafael Hernández school as well!

With your donation, you will help us continue partnerships such as Karate, African Dance & Drumming, 3Point, 10Boys Initiative, and Nature Club in the After School Program, and will support class-led initiatives such as field trips to the State House, local museums, and workshops for families at the Hernández school. Donate online now.

We also accept in-kind donations such as board games, school supplies, and more!

COVID-19 Relief

With so much uncertainty and concern surrounding the recent novel coronavirus, it’s easy to feel helpless—but there is something we can all do to help the fight against it. Aside from keeping safe and following guidelines from medical experts, we can all do our part to get help to people and regions that have been affected.

By fundraising for coronavirus relief efforts, or donating to our Hernández COVID-19 relief fund, we can all do our part and provide much-needed support and aid. Here at the Rafael Hernández K-8 in Roxbury, we are preparing to support our families this summer by providing remote learning packs to all Hernández students as well as they have access to basic needs such as food and mental health resources.


If you would like to speak to someone about making a contribution, please email FOH Executive Director Sara Kilroy at or our Principal, Carolina Brito, at
