Message from our former Chair, Kate Foley
One of the great things about community is that it enables us to help others more effectively than we can as individuals. The Elmhurst District 205 Foundation for Educational Excellence continues to provide enrichment to the students of our entire community of 13 schools, as we have for the past 25 years. By pooling our strengths and resources through partnerships with community organizations, clubs, booster groups, businesses and other not-for-profit organizations, the District 205 Foundation has increased its impact on our schools and students.
We hope you will help the Foundation continue its mission of advancing educational excellence through enhancements to all 13 schools by supporting us with a donation, attending one of our events or volunteering your time. The District 205 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and as such, your charitable contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
It’s easy to donate! Simply visit our website and donate online at www.elmhurst205.org/foundation_donate, or use the enclosed envelope to mail a check to the Foundation at 162 S York, Elmhurst IL 60126, or call our executive director, Lisa Fanelli, at 630-617-2328. If your company participates in a matching gift program, simply request a matching gift form and send it completed and signed with your gift. The Foundation will do the rest!
Lastly, I must express my appreciation to the dedicated individuals who voluntarily served on the Foundation Board over the past 25 years and all those who supported them along the way. Most especially, thank you to our donors, partners and teachers for your continued support.
Kate Foley, Chairperson 2010-2015
