Crisis Fund

The District 54 Education Foundation has long been committed to the children from financially struggling families in District 54, and our support is needed now more than ever.

To meet that need, the Foundation has created a new fund called the D54 Foundation Crisis Fund, which will be used to support our most at-risk families, including the 20% of students who qualify for free lunch. This emergency fund will help families impacted by this virus, and could be used in the future to provide immediate access to financial assistance for financially struggling families.

In this time of social distancing, we can still make a difference in our community by making monetary donations to causes we believe in from our homes. I’m asking everyone in this community to join me and the other trustees of the D54 Education Foundation in supporting the children in this community.
