Thank you for all that do to support our community, our public schools, and our children.



Foundation 65 is the educational foundation that invests in educator-led literacy and arts initiatives and programs as we work together toward educational equity. We focus on foundational years so that all of our children can thrive within District 65.

Proceeds from this event support literacy and arts innovations throughout District 65.  From literacy coaches to summer reading to classroom based initiatives, Foundation 65 funding serves as a catalyst for new ideas and transformations within our schools.
