We are the Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58

We are a diverse group of community members from District 58, including administrators, staff, principals, teachers, board of education members, village officials, and local business owners, all dedicated to enhancing education in our district. The Education Foundation of Downers Grove District 58 works year-round to boost private funding for educational activities that aren’t covered by tax dollars. Our efforts support district-wide programs and offer grant opportunities for teachers to enhance existing programs and introduce new, innovative ideas to our schools.
