About Us


The Central Foundation’s mission shall be to foster unified community support for innovative programs and equitable opportunities for all District 301 students by accessing, utilizing and distributing alternate resources.

Career and College Readiness!

Dream  It – The 301 Central Education Foundation was established in January 2008. The first organization of its kind in our community, the Foundation is dedicated to enriching, enhancing and supporting Central District 301. From the very beginning the Foundation has dreamed of promoting excellence in education for the benefit of career and college readiness of the district students.

Fund It – Support of District initiatives and scholarships are made possible by a generous community of donors. It is through this community participation, now and in the future, that will allow the Foundation to continue to  Give to Grow, and funding of programs and projects which supplement the educational opportunities for District 301 students.

Build It  – We are excited with the opportunity to partner with the Central District 301 to provide three new programs to build a better student, Veterinary Science, Incubator and Mobile Maker, these programs will allow students to exit Central’s doors with certificates that can be used in the workforce immediately, or dual-credit options that can transfer to college as credit.
