The new school year is an exciting one for Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary and launching a 365 CLUB. Members of the 365 CLUB pledge a dollar a day (or more) in support of innovation in our local public schools.
Be a leader for the next generation! Join us as we elevate the excellence in Champaign and Urbana public schools by investing in educators and students. BECOME A MEMBER!
THANK YOU TO OUR 365 Club Member list!
“Students are like little businesses and companies that will one day have the opportunity to share with the world their gifts and ideas. Every student potentially has something to offer. Whether it is to serve others, one’s country, or the world, it is still something. Every big thing once started out small, and even businesses require a little push to get them going.”

Videos featured at the 365 CLUB BREAKFAST
With $250 from a CU Schools Foundation Compact Grant, students at Urbana Middle School built and launched rockets, then collected and analyzed data associated with the launch.
Engaging Students through the Arts
Students at King Elementary in Urbana demonstrate what they’ve learned about butterflies as part of a Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation grant. Teachers Cara Maurizi and Lisa Ferguson developed a series of units that integrate science, music, dance and literacy.
Creating Sustainable Nutrition through Education
On November 30, 2016, five teams of students participated in a Chopped Challenge at Urbana High School. Each team created a dish using two types of greens from the UHS garden and an egg from the chickens at Fowler Farm. Their culinary achievements were judged by a team local experts. This video features the winning presentation made by three students at Edison Middle School.
