The High School District 211 Foundation has existed since 1995 and its historical function of receiving and disbursing scholarship monies to students continues; however, the Foundation's scope was expanded in 2007 to focus on providing funding for innovative programs and materials to enhance and enrich students' educational experiences.
Contributions exceeding $200,000 from the Foundation Trustees and other Partner Donors have provided funds for Grants and were awarded to projects directly related to academics, the arts, student leadership, and community service. From providing incentives for at-risk readers to supporting a peer leadership program for freshmen students, the Grants provide experiences that are not normally funded from within the regular school budget.
Through tax deductible donations, the Foundation will continue to provide new learning experiences for students that would not be possible without the Foundation's financial assistance.
