Grants for District 204 Staff

Our Mission and History
In partnership with Indian Prairie School District 204, the Indian Prairie Educational Foundation (IPEF) enriches education for students by enhancing their academic, artistic, emotional and physical needs.

Since 1988, IPEF’s Grant program has provided more than $1.4 million in funding to support more than 800 projects encompassing all grade levels.

Watch our 2016 Celebration Tour to get an idea of some of the projects we have supported.

Our Vision/Goal
The goal of the Indian Prairie Educational Foundation (IPEF) is to actively support District 204 educators by funding grants that encourage staff to think outside-the-box, developing innovative and creative educational experiences for students. We anticipate funding approximately $50,000 in grants in the current school year.
