The Winnetka Public Schools Foundation is a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization that raises additional funds for Winnetka School District 36.  These funds enable the district to provide educational offerings that go above and beyond what would be possible with tax dollars alone. Many programs that originated because of Foundation grants are now essential parts of the outstanding curriculum provided by Winnetka District 36.

Unlike the school PTOs–which raise funds that stay within each school building–the Foundation raises money for educational programs that touch every child in the district. Foundation grants support core curriculum enhancements; creativity and innovation; and a biennial professional development institute for teachers, held during the summer.
