District 206 Education Foundation



The District 206 Education Foundation will be holding the 29th Annual William McCormick Memorial Golf Outing on Friday, June 25th at Glenwoodie Country Club. This outing allows the Foundation to give back to District 206 students and staff through mini-grants, science projects, athletic support, senior scholarships, and much more. Please consider giving back to a worthy cause that gives so much to the Bloom Township community. 

If you are interested in golfing, please see the flyer attached. If you are not interested in teeing it up, we are also looking for volunteers to help out throughout the day. Please email Amy Stockwell if you are interested. 

Thank you for your support!


Friends of District 206 – Thank you!

With your support, we surpassed our $15,000 goal and raised $16,185 on Giving Tuesday!  With these funds, we will be able to supply funding for several different projects at Bloom and Bloom Trail High Schools.

We can’t thank you enough for your financial gifts, and it is truly an honor to have your contributions.  Your help will allow us to:

Purchase additional equipment, software and training for the state-qualifying Robotics Program;

  • Buy additional band instruments;
  • Acquire additional equipment for our environmental science labs;
  • Provide further sponsorship for Fine Arts Week 2021; and
  • Purchase personal equipment for our student-athletes to participate more safely in spring sports.

This effort has been a great success and continuing our work is only possible because of friends like you.  Thank you!

Also, please mark your calendars for Friday, June 25, 2021 at 11:00 a.m., for the Foundation’s 29th Annual William McCormick Golf Outing.  Please be sure to visit our site in the coming months for sponsorship and registration information for the golf outing.

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.

On behalf of the entire Foundation, students, faculty and administration, thank you for your continued support!

With gratitude,


District 206 Education Foundation
