This year, with unprecedented community support, students in District 205 are benefiting from $108,000 in funding from the District 205 Foundation. (Click here for more information). A portion of those dollars represent Thiems Grants that were awarded to teachers and students from our longest running program named in memory of Dr. Russell Thiems, Superintendent of District 205 from 1983 to 1992.


This year's Thiems Grant application deadline is February 10, 2016. Teachers, students, administrators, parents or community members in District 205 are eligible to apply. The programs, projects, activities or materials applied for must be designed to enhance the educational experience of students, be clearly in support of and/or help deliver relevant curriculum and ideally represent a creative or innovative approach to education.

Applications will be accepted beginning January 1, 2016, and recipients will be announced in the spring. Please read the guidelines and restrictions prior to beginning the application process and feel free to contact The Foundation Office at 630-617-2328 with any questions.
