  • Make a donation
  • Honor an educator through our Staff Appreciation program
  • Become a Foundation Board Member
  • Volunteer for a Foundation Committee
  • Participate in Foundation sponsored events
  • Make a donation when registering your student for school
  • Shop with a local business that supports our schools
  • Select the District 181 Foundation as your charity of choice when you shop using AmazonSmile

staff appreciation

Give a special educator the perfect gift- one that really lets that person know how much you value his or her work.  Make a donation to the District 181 Foundation in honor of your child's teacher.  

Let us know the teacher(s) or other staff members you wish to honor, the school, the amount you would like to donate and any personal message you would like included, by sending an email to admin@d181foundation.org. We'll take care of the rest.

When you donate, here's what happens:

  • Your teacher receives your message (which is also shared with the teacher's principal and the superintendent), a certificate of appreciation, and public recognition in the schools and local newspapers.
  • District 181 students and teachers benefit from the grants and programs that will be funded with your donation.
  • The smiles we see when these certificates are delivered are huge.  
  • Remember: the amount you donate remains confidential.
  • You may honor as many educators as you wish with your single donation.
