Each year the District 54 Education Foundation hosts two major fundraisers as well as many other fundraisers throughout the year in partnership with local restaurants and other businesses. If you would be interested in partnering with us to raise money to benefit the children in our community, please contact Jennie Waldorf at (847) 357-5038 or

Golf Outing – June 11

Our major fundraiser is a golf outing in June. Our 2017 outing raised more than $40,000 through registrations, sponsorships and donations. Visit our Golf Outing page for more information about this year’s outing on Monday, June 11 at the Schaumburg Golf Club or to access our Sponsor Registration and Golfer Registration form.

Thank a Teacher – May 7-11

Are you looking for a unique gift to give your child’s teacher during Teacher Appreciation Week May 7-11? You can donate to the District 54 Education Foundation in their honor by visiting and choosing THANKS from the “Give…” drop-down menu. We will mail a certificate to the teacher you are honoring, and your donation will support students in need in District 54. If you would prefer, you can fill out our printable form and mail it to the Foundation with your donation.

Septemberfest — Labor Day weekend

Thank you to everyone who supported the Foundation at Septemberfest by parking at Collins School, purchasing a slice of pizza from our not-for-profit day partner — Jet’s Pizza — or volunteering at the parking lot or food booth. This is our second-biggest fundraiser of the year, and all profits support District 54 students.
