WHITESIDE EDUCATION FOUNDATION
Why Was the Education Foundation Created?
The Whiteside Education Foundation has been established to accept contributions, gifts, and bequests from individuals, businesses and organizations to support efforts to enrich and supplement the regular education programs offered to students of Whiteside School District 115.
Why is the Endowment Fund Important?
It is the Foundation's goal to make these funds serve Whiteside students forever. Therefore, all donations will be invested. After the fund reaches $100,000, the Foundations' Board of Directors will use only the income from this investment. Thus, your donation will keep growing and giving.
What Kinds of Programs Will the Education Foundation Support?
The Foundation is just starting. Some ideas for the future include:
Promote a positive image for Whiteside
Reach out to the community and be a link to the school for non-student households
Provide educational materials that would not be available through normal funding sources
Keep technology up to date
Assist with senior volunteer programs
Help the district address growth-related issues
Welcome new families
