Spring 2013 Teacher Grants Announced!

In the Spring of 2013 FUND69 approved 11 grants totaling  $13,353.46. We are delighted to be able to provide these resources to the staff of District 69 for projects to enhance the quality of education for the students.

This was only possible because of the many generous people who supported FUND69 by attending our events, donating money and donating items for our raffle or auction. Thank you!

Help Us Bloom this Spring - support the FUND69 Endowment!

Click Here to Support the FUND69 Endowment

Two years ago, a group of local parents started the FUND69 Endowment to help secure the financial future of our school district. The goal was to create a fund that would generate interest for years to come and help guarantee a rich educational experience for all our children.  Thanks to the generous donations of parents like you, we’re already off to a great start.

Now we need your help to take us to the next level. We’ve placed special FUND69 Endowment “trees” in the lobbies of Madison, Edison and Lincoln schools as a way to recognize and celebrate our donors. Simply make a donation, and your family’s last name will be added to the FUND69 Tree.

  • For a $5 donation, we will send a fresh apple to your teacher on Teacher Appreciation Day (4/30, 5/1, or 5/2)
  • Every Madison student whose family donates $10 or more will receive an apple charm!
  • Every Edison and Lincoln student whose family donates $10 or more will receive a nut-free Affy Tapple!

After you make your donation, email us at endowment@fund69.org to let us know the name(s) and room number(s) of your students, and the name of the teacher(s) to whom you would like us to deliver fresh apples on April 30th.

If you prefer to donate by check, return one of the forms below to your child’s classroom or school office with a check payable to "Fund69 Endowment".

Form for Madison Elementary Families

Form for Edison Elementary Families

Form for Lincoln Junior High families


Thanks!

Thank You for Supporting District 69 Schools at Barnes & Noble Day

Thank you to the hundreds of people who came out to support District 69 schools at this year's Barnes & Noble fundraiser. There were great performances by students, delicious school-themed drinks and opportunities to pick up books for your favorite teacher. Thanks to your support, FUND69 raised over $1,200 that we can put back into the schools.
