ISD 883 Education Foundation
Welcome to†Rockford Education Foundation
Who we are--
The ISD #883 Education Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization run by a volunteer board of directors who are active supporters of public education in our community. The purpose of the Foundation is to become the conduit between the school district and those who wish to give money to support the students in Rockford Area Schools.†††The Foundation focuses distributions on areas or programs beyond normal budgeted operations and activities.
In 2004, community leaders began exploring ideas to make Rockford Area Schools educational programs viable to continue and grow in learning opportunities for the area children. The Foundation received three key donations which laid the groundwork to build upon. The gifts of $25,000 from the Francis family, $30,000 from the Cates family and $5,000 from the Rockford Lions Club, purchased a computer lab, items for the gifted and talented program and many textbooks.†††The Foundation would like to thank each and every person for supporting the children of Rockford Area Schools through their donations..
