Honor a Teacher - Make a Difference Program Yielded a $500 profit

Thank you for your support in honoring a teacher this fall. Please see the pictures below of the teachers and staff that were honored by the parents and students.

How it Works

We know that a great teacher can make a BIG difference in your life. That's why the EEF's board is making it easy for you to show your appreciation to that special teacher, administrator, coach or employee of Charleston School District #1 while also enhancing the educational experience in the classroom.  For as little as a $50 donation to the Excellence in Education Foundation,  we can hand write a thank you or have an email sent to let them know  the difference that they have made. The donation will fund the teacher grants given each spring to fund assemblies, technology, instruments, curriculum and other great ideas from our teachers. 

Donating online is easy. Just:

  1. Click on the "Donate Today" box below.

  2. Under Program, select "Honor a Teacher" and then type in the honoree name in the box.

  3. Add to the basket and add in your payment information.

If you prefer to pay by check, please make payable to CUSD#1 Excellence in Education Foundation and send to: Attention Jean Strong, 410 West Polk Avenue, Charleston, IL 61920.
