Educator Funding Options

The Student Excellence Foundation (Foundation), formerly NEW 200, is adding a second funding option to help enhance education in District 200 classrooms. During the 2015-16 school year, 21 educators applied for grants totaling almost $38,000 that the Foundation was unable to award due to lack of funding. To remedy this, the Foundation, with the support of the Wheaton-Warrenville PTA Council, is adding a new Fund-a-Classroom (crowdfunding) option that can benefit your classroom or Library Learning Center (LLC).

Our Student Excellence Grants program, formerly Support Our Students Grants, will remain the same as last year.
