About the Foundation

The Kaneland Foundation is a non-profit organization that has contributed for decades to the educational needs of the students of Kaneland District #302. Our mission is to support academic excellence through innovation. Since the Kaneland Foundation has no administrative costs, every dollar goes back to our students in the Kaneland District.

To achieve our goals, we are looking to expand our group of Foundation Friends. Foundation Friends are invited to join us at meetings, assist in the planning and execution of our fundraising activities, and impact the educational opportunities we provide to Kaneland students. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. Go Knights!
