Education Grants

The D158 Education Foundation is committed to funding educational programs and projects to enhance the learning experiences of Huntley Community School District 158 students.

As such, the Education Foundation was pleased to award $6,327.96 in grants to Huntley Community School District 158 educators in the 2018-19 school year. Grant awards included an exciting entrepreneurial project for students with special needs, advanced hands-on equipment for HHS Medical Academy students, books in a wide variety of genres, reading toolkits, Math Team contest fees, and more!

Thanks to matching funds from the HHS Fine Arts Boosters, the Education Foundation was also able to provide funding for the purchase of technical effects equipment for the District’s Performing Arts Center. This is especially exciting since nearly every student in the District has the opportunity to experience the more than 8 plus stage productions that take place each school year in addition to learning more about the arts programs.

A list of past grant recipients is available here.
