Supporting Students Today,
Preparing Students for Tomorrow.

The District 54 Education Foundation hosts 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 email [email protected] or call (847) 357-5027.

Golf Outing – June

Our largest fundraiser is a golf outing in June at the Schaumburg Golf Club. Our 2019 outing raised nearly $30,000 through registrations, sponsorships and donations, many of which came from local businesses and community members. The 2020 Golf Outing was cancelled due to COVID-19. However, we are grateful to all of the 2020 Golf Outing sponsors who chose to reallocate their sponsorship money to the Crisis Fund. 

Septemberfest – Labor Day Weekend

The Foundation’s second-biggest fundraiser is parking cars during the Village of Schaumburg’s Septemberfest celebration over the Labor Day weekend. We also participate in Septemberfest’s not-for-profit day. Local restaurants Riccardo’s, Pilot Pete’s and Jet’s Pizza allowed our volunteers to sell their food at the festival and keep the profits to support our Food 4 Thought breakfast program.

Thank a Teacher

Are you looking for a unique gift to give your child’s teacher or another staff member who has made a difference in their life? You can donate to the District 54 Education Foundation in their honor by visiting d54foundation.org/donate and choosing THANKS from the “Give…” drop-down menu. We will mail a certificate to the staff member you are honoring, and your donation will support students in need in District 54. If you would prefer, you can fill out our Thank a Teacher printable form and mail it to the Foundation with your donation.
