Ways to Support

The District 59 Opportunity Fund was established to help District 59 families in need.  During the height of COVID, the Opportunity Fund helped to feed countless families within our community.  Earlier this year, two of our District 59 families experienced the sudden loss of a child. At this difficult time, the Education Foundation is offering support to the families through the Opportunity Fund, and we invite the community to contribute to the Fund to assist the families with their financial needs.
