ETHS Educational Foundation

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

    You Can Make a Difference

    Evanston Township High School continues to maintain its reputation as one of the finest public high schools in the country thanks to the vision of our leaders, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the generosity of our alumni, parents, and other friends. Our supporters understand that excellence doesn't happen by accident: it requires a steady infusion of time, talent, and financial resources. Thanks to individual, corporate, and foundation gifts, the ETHS Foundation is able to carry out its mission.

ETHS Educational Foundation supports ETHS with $780,000 for Capital Projects

  • In June, 2016 the ETHS Educational Foundation contributed more than $780,000 for various projects which were in need of funding at Evanston Township High School. 

    $230,000 was designated for enhancements to the main office area and Heritage (H) Hallway which include improved lighting and display cases for student projects.  Construction is underway and will be completed by August, 2016. 

    Additionally, other major investments included: $194,000 for the creation of the Milligan Center for Entrepreneurship; $78,000 in support of the Cradle to Career partnership at ETHS; $75,000 for the resurfacing of the Lake Street Tennis Courts and the adjacent permanent site for Geometry in Construction; and $54,000 for the school’s Advanced Manufacturing Lab.

    Thanks in part to two generous challenges extended by loyal donors this past year, the number of contributors to the Foundation’s annual fund is at an all-time high!

    It is this partnership of private philanthropy and public funding which demonstrates a strong commitment to public secondary school education in our community and our Evanston Township High School students – our future leaders - are most grateful.  Thank you!
