About the Foundation

Over the years, the residents of Skokie have shown a sincere commitment to the quality of education that East Prairie School District provides to the community. This commitment continues today with the establishment of the East Prairie School Educational Foundation. Through the Foundation, local business and community representatives are working together to supplement traditional educational funding and ensure that a quality education is available for our community's children.

The East Prairie School Educational Foundation has been created to complement and enhance the educational opportunities of students attending District 73. By attracting private and corporate donations, the Foundation can provide educational enrichment programs, services and activities not normally financed with tax dollars. These added educational opportunities for students, staff, parents and the community can make a difference between a very good school system and an excellent one.

Established in 1997 as a not for profit Corporation, the East Prairie School Educational Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees who are dedicated to educational excellence for this community's children. The Foundation's Board of Trustees operates independently of the East Prairie School District and is responsible for the financial management of Foundation funds.

The East Prairie School Educational Foundation's Mission is to acquire and distribute resources to the East Prairie School District #73 to enhance, enrich or supplement learning opportunities for its students, staff and community. The Foundation achieves its mission through direct support for:

  • Student Development

  • Staff Excellence and Creativity

  • School/Community Partnership

Thank you for your support!
