The Community Foundation is happy to announce the Sandwich Education Foundation Fund. The purpose of the Agency Fund is to provide unrestricted support to the Sandwich Education Foundation in Sandwich, IL, in fulfillment of its mission.
The Sandwich Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed in 1994 to supplement and enhance educational opportunities for Sandwich CUSD #430 students. The board of trustees contains teachers, parents, and community members who volunteer their time to help support and enrich our schools.
The Education Foundation holds fundraisers yearly to raise money for grants and scholarships. Grants are awarded for projects and items not supported in the regular school district budget. Past grants have funded math manipulatives, adaptive gardening tools, after-school plays, art programs, classroom technology, library and classroom books, preschool play equipment, and more. In addition to grant support, the Education Foundation provides two annual scholarships to graduating seniors.
“Our goal with this Fund is to ensure future funding to benefit Sandwich students,” said Sandwich Education Foundation representative Jeanette Wright. “The new Fund also provides gap funding if there are unexpected situations when we cannot hold our annual fundraisers (e.g., COVID-19). Our spring fundraisers typically generate the majority of our funding.”
“We are honored to partner with the Sandwich Education Foundation by managing their Fund,” said Community Foundation Executive Director Dan Templin. “Their role in supporting education in the Sandwich School District is vital and is evident in the support they receive from the community.”
For questions or to start your own charitable Fund at the Community Foundation, please contact Dan Templin at 815-748-5383 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
