Foundation Trustees Diane Magerko and Patti Douglas worked with District 300 art educators and their students to select artwork for the Foundation Note Card Sale. This committee worked with Rohrer Graphics in Elmhurst to make this project possible.

The note cards fundraiser will benefit the foundation's grant program, in which District 300 educators apply for and are awarded grants to fund educational projects in D300 schools. The D300 Foundation's mission is to enhance and extend learning opportunities in all D300 schools. Since its inception in 2002, the D300 Foundation has awarded local education grants -- all made possible through corporate partnerships, private donations and special fundraisers.

For information about how you can partner with the D300 Foundation and to view some of the project grants we have funded, visit the website at www.d300foundation.org.
