    Click Here to learn about ways you can support our virtual Showcase 2021 today!  The event is free to view, but we do request that you register in advance to receive additional event information and reminders

    Support from you will allow us to make unique academic enhancements within reach for all D205 students.  Despite the challenges posed by Covid-19, and the rapidly evolving educational landscape, our students continue to remain at the forefront of our work.  This year, mental health programming, scholarships for York seniors and expanding the schools' literature collections to include more diverse authors and characters are among our top priorities.  Additionally, we are committed to funding our annual Thiems grant program for teachers to explore innovative, creative and engaging educational opportunities for all students.

    Foundation 205 has a long history of building unity and partners.  Countless volunteer board members have created a legacy by serving as leaders within Elmhurst to ensure that  educational excellence is a reality for all students in District 205.  The 2021 Virtual Showcase will be our largest fundraising event of the year and requires a tremendous amount of support from our sponsors, local business owners, volunteers, and Elmhurst families.
