About Us

Our Mission

The mission of the New Lenox School District 122 Foundation is to seek alternative revenue sources for innovative projects that will directly impact and enhance the learning potential of students in New Lenox School District 122.

Our Purpose

In these difficult economic times, schools are struggling to maintain basic resources.  In an attempt to keep innovation and creativity in the classroom, the NLSD122 Foundation was established to raise funding through donations and provide enhanced educational opportunities for the students of NLSD122. Through hard-work, dedication, and synergy, the Foundation’s Directors are driven to establish perpetual financial resources to provide impact for our students.

NLSD122 Foundation and the PTO have a separate focus and are governed differently. While the PTO strives to promote parent and teacher involvement in the schools, the Foundation is focused solely on generating financial resources for the school community which will provide enhanced educational opportunities for the students of NLSD 122 not provided through traditional funding. The Foundation will disburse monies for innovative classroom projects that meet specific criteria and are not funded by the School District or by the individual schools. Please consider making a financial donation. We welcome various levels of financial support and sponsorship.

We are an Illinois 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation that is tax exempt for educational purposes. The tax exempt status permits 100% tax-deductible donations.  These donations will create perpetual financial resources to support opportunities for NLSD 122 students that will enhance their educational experience and build their future.
