Education Foundation

The Foundation was originally established in 1997 to provide resources to aid teachers, principals, sponsors and coaches with funding for educational projects outside of the traditional academic experience. Our ultimate goal is to return students to McLean County where they will use their education to support future business and industry in our local communities.


Donations to the Educational Foundation can be made in honor or memory of a loved one, or a gift to demonstrate your commitment and support of the children of McLean County.

The Foundation is comprised of a Board of Directors made up of community business leaders and educators.
