ETHS Educational Foundation

  • The mission of the ETHS Educational Foundation is to raise and distribute funds to Evanston Township High School in order to complement, enhance and enrich, beyond the means of conventional public funding, opportunities that further the educational mission of ETHS.

    Created in 2005, the ETHS Educational Foundation is an independent 501 c3 organization led by a volunteer board of directors drawn from a cross section of the district community, including alumni and current parents.  The Foundation works with the ETHS Board of Education and the ETHS Administration to identify projects that will enhance opportunities for students and maintain ETHS’s hallmark of excellence.

    Every alumnus, parent and community member is encouraged to make an annual gift and participate in fundraising events.  Every dollar makes a difference.

    Every hallway is a runway. Plans are underway to create an inspirational environment highlighting the history of ETHS. Re-designing the high-traffic H-hallway as a "Heritage Hallway" will offer a more welcoming and inspiring atmosphere for all who come to ETHS.



    A vital 3rd component of the Renewable Energy and Ecology lab, installation of two modest wind turbines at Memorial Stadium will provide additional curricular opportunities for hands-on learning about the physical technologies powering the classroom. Students will be able to chart real-time web-based data.
