Who We Are
The District 54 Education Foundation is an all-volunteer (501)(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to providing resources and support to District 54 families to ensure the academic and social-emotional success of their children. We cannot expect students to have a willingness to learn if their basic needs are not being met. In District 54, 22% of students qualify for the federal free lunch program. Since its founding in 1987 the Foundation has donated nearly $1 million to fund various initiatives to support these children in our community.

Ongoing efforts rely, in part, on donations from members of the community who have generously invested in education through the D54 Foundation. While Foundation programs have shifted over the years, its focus has remained the same: supporting our students today and preparing students for tomorrow. The D54 Foundation accomplishes those goals by funding our Families in Crisis Fund, Food 4 Thought Breakfast program, grants for extracurcicular activities, STEM programming and the District 54 food pantries.
