D70 Foundation


One District. One Community. One of a Kind. 

Mission Statement: The mission of the District 70 Foundation for Excellence is to engage our community as public school advocates and to raise funds and develop resources to support innovation and educational excellence in our schools. 

Goal: Our goal is to support, enrich, and enhance the education of all of our students and to provide them with the best opportunities to succeed in higher education, their careers, and life.

District 70 parents have begun the process of creating a D70 Foundation, called D70 Foundation for Excellence. 

The D70 Foundation will develop resources to enrich the curriculum, enhance educational opportunities for students, and provide innovative programs created by teachers to improve education.  The Foundation will be a private fund-raising arm that will help the district where tax dollars stop short.

The D70 Foundation will consist of community members, business leaders, and educators collaborating to provide the best educational experience for Libertyville's children.

The Foundation is a tax-deductible, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for people and corporations seeking to make financial contributions to D70. Memorial gifts and scholarships also can be a way for people to contribute to the group. Double your contribution with matching corporation donations.
