history

The District 181 Foundation fiscal year is July 1 - June 30.


District 181 Foundation IRS 990 (2015-16 Fiscal Year)


Tax ID Number: 36-4259388

Mission

To inspire community involvement and support for education through partnerships, programs and events that enhance District 181's achievement of its vision for our community's schools.

In 1996, the Board of Education of District 181 directed a year-long study to assess the feasibility of establishing a foundation for the school district.  A committee of staff members and citizens studied the issue and determined that a foundation was viable and could offer significant value to District 181 and the community. 


The District 181 Foundation was formally established in 1997 and incorporated in 1999 as an independent 501(c)(3) organization for the purpose of supporting initiatives that benefit students across District 181 which are not or cannot be funded by tax revenues. 


Since its inception the District 181 Foundation has invested over $1,000,000 in District 181 schools.
