How your contribution makes a difference

Foundation Goals:

• Encourage school-community partnerships

• Facilitate student development

• Foster creativity in the pursuit of educational excellence

A separate entity operating independently, yet collaboratively, with School District 54, the Foundation is a nonprofit organization which serves as a vehicle for obtaining resources to support educational initiatives not funded by regular school district revenue sources.

Annually the Foundation generates funds to support programs in a wide variety of areas including math, science, literacy, music, visual art, nutrition, health and fitness. In partnership with companies with an appropriately specific interest or focus, the Foundation support has included school and district-wide science initiatives, before-school breakfast programs and student back-to-school backpacks. Donations have funded scholarships providing students, who would otherwise not have been able to do so, the opportunity to engage in summer academic, cultural and athletic programs.

Established in 1987, the District 54 Education Foundation generates and distributes financial and other resources to School District 54 schools for programs aimed at enriching and enhancing the quality of education and providing students with extended learning opportunities.
