"When American suburbs are compared with two of the top school systems in the world – in Finland and Singapore – very few, such as Evanston, IL., and Scarsdale, N.Y., outperform the international competition."
~The Wall Street Journal Nov. 14, 2012
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. Through individual, corporate, and foundation gifts, the Foundation is able 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.
ETHS’s advancement team has developed comprehensive fund-raising programs that offer the opportunity for every member of our community to make a difference. Our Executive Director, Fran Caan, is pleased to help supporters develop a gift plan, including planned giving opportunities, that fits their particular needs and interests.
Current funding priorities include the construction of an advanced manufacturing lab and renovations to our planetarium. Read here to learn more about our plans for the manufacturing lab.
