The Deerfield Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization made up of community members and educators working together to raise money for the benefit of students in Deerfield Public School District 109. Our mission is to meaningfully enhance the educational environment of District 109 by supporting inspiring programs and projects in partnership with our community.
We strive to fund innovative programs, enhance facilities, and support activities that create important educational opportunities above and beyond those funded by the District. We could not accomplish our mission without the generous support of our corporate donors and the community members who support our cause.
