  • Past Recipients

    Since its inception in 2005, Foundation 191 has facilitated over $100,000 in funds and in-kind donations to be distributed for enhanced learning opportunities for students in District 191. This number is meaningful, not merely because of its size, but because of the broad swath of projects and programs that have enhanced, enriched and expanded the education of students over a decade. The projects remind us that small pieces can add up to big things.
