Vision / Mission

Inspiring excellence, celebrating achievement & nurturing potential.



Did you know that just $20 per student can have an impact on education, and an extra $20 can produce a change in education?  Yorkville Educational Foundation raises funds that goes directly towards its mission:  Inspiring excellence, celebrating achievement and nurturing potential.  We work towards that mission through our signature programs, including our “Fostering Our Future” district-wide recognition event and our YEF Grants Awards. 

YEF values the importance of creative, adaptive and collaborative learning in our schools.  We strive to support them as they become socially and globally responsible adults that create a positive impact in our community and beyond.



Yorkville Educational Foundation’s vision is to create a community of supporters to:

  • Fuel innovation through programs throughout the district

  • Foster collaboration and experiential learning for all students

  • Recognize excellence of students, staff and volunteers

  • Establish a legacy through the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs
