Focus on the Foundation – January 2018
The District 54 Education Foundation’s programs primarily serve students from families with financial needs. In District 54, nearly one-fourth of students qualify for the federal free lunch program, which for a family of four means an annual income of less than $32,000.
A key focus for the Foundation is providing breakfast to ensure that students begin their day ready to learn. Thanks to the community’s generous support of our Food 4 Thought campaign, in January 2018 the Foundation will be funding breakfast programs for students at 18 of our 28 schools, serving nearly 1,400 students in need. Thank you to our 2017-18 all-school sponsors: Woodfield Area Children’s Organization, Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates, Tate & Lyle, Chick-fil-A of Schaumburg/West Schaumburg, and Schaumburg Park Foundation. Thank you also to the staff of District 54, who have donated enough money through the payroll deduct program to sponsor a school.
