Supporting Students Today,

Preparing Students for Tomorrow.

Who We Are

The District 54 Education Foundation is an all-volunteer (501)(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to its mission of assisting School District 54 in ensuring student success. 

Since its founding in 1987 the Foundation has donated nearly $1 million to fund various initiatives. Ongoing efforts rely, in part, on donations from members of the community, like you, who have generously invested in education through the Foundation.

While Foundation programs have shifted over the years, its focus has remained the same: supporting our students today and preparing students for tomorrow.

In District 54, 22 percent of students qualify for the federal free lunch program. Over the years, the District 54 Education Foundation’s focus has been to ensure all District 54 students have the same opportunities by funding

The D54 Foundation created a new fund this year, called the D54 Foundation Crisis Fund. This emergency fund will help families impacted by the pandemic and could be used in the future to provide immediate access to financial assistance for District 54 families.
