Board of Directors

We are a representation of Yorkville.  We are you.


The Board.

We are 10 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.



Our all-volunteer Board of Directors is comprised of parents, alumni and business owners who value a public education and are invested in the success of the Yorkville community.   Each of our Board Members is also a donor to the Foundation, with the Board donating more than $1,500 last year. Our Board members also donate their time and talent to the Foundation, utilizing their marketing, business and financial backgrounds to provide services to the Foundation for free. Yorkville Educational Foundation is an active part of the business community as a member of the Yorkville Area Chamber of Commerce.
