Stockton Education Foundation Says Thank You!

about 1 month ago

The Stockton Education Foundation raised $21,000 in four hours during this year’s Radio-a-thon event. During this year’s event, Stockton students from all grade levels performed, and student organizations as well as community organizations were interviewed. The Alumni breakfast was also held in conjunction and a good time was had by everyone who attended.

On behalf of the Foundation, teachers and students, we would like to thank all of our donors for making the 2017 Radio-a-thon a record breaking year. Thank you to all of the volunteers who donated their time to make this year’s radio-a-thon a success.

Donations can still be sent directly to Stockton Education Foundation, 540 N Rush street, Stockton, Illinois 61085.

 
Mission:
To enhance and enrich the educational opportunities of the students, staff, and all members of Stockton Community Unit School District #206.
 
Purpose:
To provide funds for improving instruction and provide regular student learning experiences beyond regular programs.
 
Background:
The Stockton Education Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation was established in 2007-2008 to enrich and supplement the educational opportunities offered to students of the Stockton School District. The Foundation supports enrichment programs and services not funded with tax dollars. Supplemental programs and learning experiences are essential to ensure that our students continue to succeed in a technologically complex and culturally diverse society.
Since its inception, the Foundation has granted over $60,000 to the teachers of Stockton for use in their classrooms. Funds have been granted for a variety of purposes in the Elementary, Middle, and High Schools from LCD projectors, computers, and software to lab supplies in both science and agriculture curriculums to classroom aids in the music and art programs. The Foundation's website includes a complete listing of grant awards through calendar year 2010.
 
Donations:
The Stockton Education Foundation is registered with the Internal Revenue Service and has its own 501(c)3 to receive gifts, contributions, and memorials to disburse funds to enhance academic programs in the Stockton Public Schools. Funds are managed by an independent group of community members who form the Foundation's Board of Directors. All contributions are tax deductible.
 
Fundraising:
The Foundation's chief fundraising event is its annual Radio-a-thon held every fall in conjunction with Homecoming Weekend. In addition, the Foundation accepts numerous gifts given in memorium of family members as well as direct donations. All funds that are raised are returned to the students of the Stockton School District in the form of grants awarded to teachers. Donations can be sent to any Foundation Board Member or directly to Stockton Education Foundation, 236 North Pearl Street, Stockton, Illinois 61085.
 
Grant Applications:
Faculty members are encouraged to submit grant requests, which are available in each building. Grant requests are reviewed periodically throughout the year at scheduled Foundation meetings. Required grant applications are required that explain the overall impact of the request on the academic program for Stockton School District students.
 
Grant applications can be found Here.
 
  Education is the foundation of our democracy and our community.  We are very proud of the Stockton Schools' past, and we eagerly anticipate Stockton CUSD #206's future.  Our foundation's goal is to fund programs that will allow our students to be the best prepared students anywhere.  Funds raised will enhance and add to what the school district already provides.  The best investment that any of us can make is in our children.  After all, our children are our future.
