About

HRK Foundation is a family foundation defined by quiet leadership and philanthropy. The Board seeks to improve the fabric of our community by recognizing and addressing unequal access to resources as we work to promote healthy families and healthy communities.

HRK Foundation is an umbrella organization incorporating a number of family funds. The most visible of these funds was the MAHADH Fund, which was established in 1962 as a giving vehicle for Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Andersen Hulings and her husband, A.D. (Bill) Hulings. Both founders are now deceased and the MAHADH Fund sunset, but their legacy of generosity and quiet service continue through the philanthropy and community involvement of their descendants.
