The purpose of the East Peoria Elementary School District #86 Foundation is to enhance the quality of educational programs and services available to students in District #86. The Foundation is building a permanent endowment for the funding of supplemental/enrichment programs beyond the basic school programs. The Foundation is not supported by tax revenues.

Foundation Funds are obtained from individual and corporate contributions. The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization, and contributions are tax deductible. Memorials have been made by the Board of Education, friends and family in honor of deceased family members, faculty and staff.

Each school year, the Foundation awards $600 mini-grants to teachers.  The mini-grants provide opportunities for teachers and students that would not be possible without the Foundation's help.  This year, the deadline for submitting mini-grant applications is September 30th, 2016.
