ITASCA, ILLINOIS -- It has been said that children are our future. Education is the key to that future. For that reason, the William James Black Children's Memorial Fund for the Sweet Water Foundation was established in 2008. It is the purpose of the Foundation to provide educational support through materials and supplies to children around the world. Currently, we serve children in Vietnam, Japan and Oak Park. Since the founding, over $53,000 has been dedicated to this purpose by the Foundation.

The Sweet Water Foundation is very small with yearly donations amounting to about $10,000.

We are half way through our fund raising campaign for this year, and have only achieved a little over $5,000.

Your help is needed.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity, and as such, all donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law. You can help by sending a donation (large or small) to the Sweet Water Foundation, 107 W. Washington St., Itasca, IL 60143-2552.

All donations are greatly appreciated.
