Mission Statement

The mission of the Western Springs Foundation for Educational Excellence is to acquire and distribute financial and other resources for the benefit of Western Springs District 101 educational programs and activities that will extend and enhance the quality and depth of education and provide students with unique learning opportunities. It is intended that the Foundation will operate independently from the District 101 School Board and its normal budgetary process.

In addition to providing unique learning opportunities for the District's students, the Foundation will support unique growth opportunities for teachers through such creative programs as the Travel and Learn for the Classroom (TLC) fellowships, offered biennially during a special fall grant period. The Foundation also aims to facilitate community and school partnerships by the promotion of community awareness of grant-funded school programs through public communication and community involvement.
