It shall be the mission of the Spirit of 67 Foundation to raise funds and acquire resources to provide enriching educational and cultural experiences for the students, parents, faculty and staff of Lake Forest School District 67 that might not otherwise be provided.
Support our schools.
DONATE TODAY for FY 2017-18.
WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE?
Spirit of 67 Foundation has been partnering with our schools to award grants that have a positive and lasting impact on Every Student in Every School, Every Day. Over the past thirty years, in an effort to be true to our mission, the Spirit of 67 Foundation has funded grants worth over $4.3 million benefiting District 67 schools. Every year our students, teachers and parents come up with incredible ideas that have the potential to enhance learning from curricular enhancements in language arts, science, math and social studies to new tools in technology, wellness and emotional wellness and world language.
Rather than asking parents to participate in a variety of hands-on fundraising activities, like candy sales, bake sales, wrapping paper or merchandise sales, we simply ask that every District 67 family make a donation each year. Today, over half of the Spirit’s revenues come from annual family donations, so please donated today so that we can continue to fund amazing grants for our schools. Donations can be made anytime. Visit our Donor Page to learn more about donor benefits.
