Yorkville Educational Foundation Brief
The Yorkville Educational Foundation (YEF) is a registered 501(c)(3) Illinois nonprofit organization. It was founded on July 21, 2015. A diverse group of community leaders was chosen as the the inaugural board of directors that has established the operational basis and initial funding for the YEF.
We are 14 volunteer directors who dedicate their time and experience to establish a functioning and sustainable foundation. We are your neighbors. We are parents of past, current and future students. We are educators. We are business stakeholders. We are community leaders. In short, we are a representation of Yorkville. We are you.
We believe in the dreams of our children and the ability of our community to empower them. Together, we invest in the future of our children to provide the necessary support to help dreams become reality.
We foster partnerships between local businesses, community and schools. We promote a collaborative structure to develop new resources for our students and teachers and take action to build and grow a strong educational support system in Yorkville.
Our ability to support our students and teachers depends on your financial contributions just as much as we depend on your and participation in fundraising and communications.
Check out our open volunteering positions, as well as the ways how you can donate.
