Helen Ann Buckley migrated to the Sonoma Valley from San Francisco in the prime of her life and she enthusiastically celebrated that move all the remaining days of her life. She truly loved Sonoma. As a token of gratitude for the joys and happiness the Sonoma Valley brought to her, Helen established the HAB Foundation and dedicated it to the enhancement of education opportunities. She left the bulk of her estate to the foundation.
The foundation has adopted the following programs to implement Helen’s desire to support education.
• Inspiration Teacher Awards
• Coordination with Summer Search
