Events & Fundraisers
For the past 11 years the Friends of District 218 Education Foundation has raised thousands to finance college scholarships and classroom grants. District employees, various fund raisers, and local businesses provide the revenue for the Foundation.
Due to the restrictions of COVID-19 the Foundation naturally cannot organize fundraisers at the present time. We would like to ask, however, that you patronize the businesses that support the Foundation.
Restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, hair salons and other local businesses face hard times. They’re vitally important to our communities – they employ our neighbors and, ultimately, supply much of the tax revenue for schools.
Whenever possible please consider spending your money in the businesses that support our students and staff. You can find a list of businesses that have donated to our events in recent years attached to this letter.
