 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 renovations to our planetarium and support for the Geometery in Construction program.

 

2014 Funding Priority:

Renovations to the

ETHS Planetarium

Dedicated in 1968, the ETHS planetarium was the first planetarium in the country to be built on a high school campus. By committing to raise funds for this project, the ETHS Foundation Board recognizes the high school’s long-standing history of blazing trails for exceptional learning experiences.

 

with the new renovated planetarium...

 

 The Stary Night system will allow the sky to be seen from any vantage point in the known universe. The old system was limited to only showing the night sky from earth.


Layered earth software will offer updates for any earthquakes and volcanoes. Concepts like plate tectonics, sea floor spreading and sedimentary layering can be illustrated ina 3d setting.

Help us suppport this exciting initative.
