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.
Greetings and happy Spring '16!
Great advances are being made at ETHS thanks in part to your generous donations. Two of this year's feature projects - Algebra in Entrepreneurship and Enhancements to the Renewable Energy and Ecology Lab - continue to reflect the high school's focus on the math and science skills that are a national educational priority.
Our primary project, renovating the H (Heritage) Hallway, will engender a sense of pride among our students for their historic high campus. We anticipate rave reviews for better lighting and the increased capacity to showcase our students' achievements and works of art. Rest assured the beautiful fireplaces and original leaded pane windows will be maintained!
We are just about 90% towards our goal of raising $450,000 for these projects and our good friend and class of '54 Wildkit, Al Hofeld, is determined to help us succeed!
Inspired by the commitment of alumni and parents to ensure a campus like no other, ETHS alum, Al Hofeld, '54 has issued a challenge:
He will donate $50,000 on the condition the Foundation is able to raise that amount prior to June 30, 2016.
According to Al "ETHS Changed my life. I went from a student who didn't read well to getting a four year scholarship to Harvard".
"That's what why ETHS is so close to my heart".
All donations will support the Foundation's current funding priorities.
