D205 Foundation Launches Community Response Fund
Kate Sampson

In response to the the COVID-19 outbreak, the D205 Foundation has launched a Community Response Fund. With your philanthropic support, this fund will allow the Foundation to rapidly deploy flexible resources to Elmhurst schools and community based organizations who are at the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

We recognize in this time of uncertainty, that some people are looking for ways to stay connected and involved in our vibrant and strong community. It is the Foundation's intention to give Elmhurst residents a safe and effective way to directly support the unique needs of our students and their families.

The D205 Foundation's COVID-19 Community Response Fund will provide grant funding in three critical areas:

  1. Food security for D205 students & their families
  2. E-learning resources & materials
  3. D205 family support and gap funding

The D205 Foundation board members will work in concert with the D205 Administrators and Board of Education members to determine the areas of greatest need. 

100% of every donation will be directed towards these initiatives. As the Foundation makes grants in the coming days and weeks, board members will share the ways in which your dollars are making a difference.
