The District 300 Foundation for Educational Excellence was established in 2002 to "...enhance and extend" education at the classroom level through innovative methods of teaching providing success for every student. 

The Foundation operates independently of District 300 and is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization responsible for the financial management of its own resources. The Board of Trustees is comprised of teaching, business and community volunteer leaders working with private and corporate donors to channel resources and develop educational programs and activities not typically financed by tax dollars.

The Foundation seeks and makes available resources to enhance learning for all D300 students through classroom grants. We provide grants in the areas of Literacy, Performing and Fine Arts, Science and Technology and Student Leadership, as well as smaller, innovation grants that could serve as pilot programs for future Foundation or District 300 expansion.

We are so proud of the teachers and students for their unique teaching and learning styles as they move together to make learning relevant.  With your help we can continue these efforts.
