Pass-through/Specific Gifts for our Schools

CUSF encourages private investment into our classrooms and/or by subject area and can direct funds that are compatible with our mission and the school districts’ gift acceptance policies. The Foundation directs thousands of dollars each year to various programs, subject areas, schools and special needs within the district.

If you have a specific gift in mind, be it funding for a field trip, classroom supplies, playground equipment, an after school program or booster support, contact the foundation office at 217-398-2873 for more information.
