Who are we?
The Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Board members consist of business, community and educational leaders who share a deep commitment to educational excellence. The Foundation operates independently of the District 45 Board of Education. Recently, the District 45 Foundation joined with Districts 4, 48 and 88 to form the Partnership for Inspired Education (PIE) foundation. This gives us a greater opportunity to engage the community as we serve the students through the District 45 Foundation and through PIE.
What does the Foundation do?
The Foundation raises funds for programs which are not within District 45’s normal operating budget.
Where does the money come from?
The Foundation obtains funds from contributions given by individuals and businesses. Funds are also raised through the annual Richard Srch Memorial Golf Outing and through participation in the PIE joint foundation.
