Huvam Yee'se'e'. Welcome.

In 2000, Hopi Tribal leadership wisely vested funding for the Hopi sinom (people) and their need for higher educational opportunities by establishing the Hopi Education Endowment Fund for the purpose of raising funds for college scholarships. Seventeen years later, the HEEF has established beneficial relationships with private donors, foundations, and fellow American Indian nations to grow the endowment for future generations to come. As a non-gaming tribe, the future of Hopi is entwined with the diligent work of the HEEF to raise funds to grow the endowment into a long-lasting funding source for Hopi students. 

Make college dreams a reality



We are currently seeking space for a new office and in the process of moving! We will not be able to renew our lease in the rock house we have been in for over 15 years as Kykotsmovi Village does not the believe the building will be safe for us to be in any longer.

We have temporary summer office hours. The air conditioning in our building is not working so our staff is only working in the office from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm (MST), Monday - Friday. If you need to reach us after office hours, please email
