District 206 Education Foundation

Welcome to the home page of the District 206 Education Foundation.  The Foundation is a volunteer organization comprised of alumni, administrators, teachers and friends that work together to raise funds to enhance the educational program at Bloom and Bloom Trail High Schools.  The Foundation was formed in 1992 amid a serious budget crisis for the District.  The Foundation was instrumental in saving several programs and extra-curricular activities at our schools.  Since its inception, the Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars that have funded various classroom projects and other student initiatives.

The Foundation is currently working on several projects at our schools.  After completing the Wesley Lind Physics Project, the Foundation is now raising funds for new equipment in our Environmental Science Labs as well preparing funding for a new robotics program.  In addition, funds are being raised for a new Music Technology Project at the schools that will create interactive sound and recording studios with the initial purchase of sound board mixers, multi-track recorders, microphones and monitors and digital audio workstations.

Please consider a donation to these worthy projects.  Click on the link below to make a donation online. 

Also, please mark your calendars for the 27th Annual William McCormick Memorial Golf Outing.  The tentative date is set for Friday, June 21, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. 

We greatly appreciate all of your continued support!
