The District 200 Education Foundation’s mission is to enhance the educational opportunities for D200 students through financial support for teacher and staff projects. Since 1993, the Foundation has awarded over $610,000 in impact grants to support enrichment activities and classroom tools which otherwise may not have been possible.

Each year, D200 Education Foundation hosts a large fundraiser and auction event. Annually, we support D200 staff and programs through D200 Education Foundation Impact Grants that allow for expanded programming and enhanced educational experiences for district students.
Every year, the District 200 Education Foundation funds grants to District 200 staff members for projects that wouldn’t fit into a traditional school budget. Many of our grants include field trips, unique classroom supplies, playground equipment or author visits. These grants have the potential to give unique learning experiences to students in the current year and even more students in the years that follow.
In honor of Carolyn ‘Sue’ Palmore for her long-term commitment and contributions to District 200 education, the Sue Palmore Award of Excellence is awarded each year to a recipient who has shown exemplary service to the students and staff of District 200.
