What have we accomplished?

Since 1983, due to the generosity of individuals, businesses and FHS alumni, the Fund has been able to purchase more than $1,000,000 worth of equipment and materials for the Freeport public schools. These purchases have benefited all children, from Kindergarten to 12th grade, in all subject areas.


Where do we get our money? TOP

The Fund depends on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and FHS alumni. Each year, the Board does an annual fundraiser through a mass mailing of its annual brochure to over 1000 individuals and corporations in the community. The brochure recognizes individual and corporate donors and persons who have been memorialized or honored by a donation to the fund in their name.


How do we operate? TOP

Teachers and librarians at all grade levels in Freeport School District #145 can apply for funds for needed equipment and materials at the start of the school year. Each November, the School Fund’s Board of Directors, with advice of key District Administrators, review the applications, analyze requests, and grant allocations according to how much money was raised during the fundraising campaign.
