Give a Wish a Home

For the past six years, the District 62 Education Foundation has provided funding for student projects and programs through its Mini-Grant and Gift Program. Last year, the Foundation introduced the Give a Wish a Home program. The Give a Wish A Home program funds resources and equipment for classrooms that may not be covered by the school budget.

If you would like to grant a wish, contact MeLinda Ward, District 62 Director of Community Relations at 847-824-8070 or email Indicate the school, item(s), and the amount you would like to sponsor. Your gift can be made in the form of cash, check, or the requested equipment and supplies.
