The Naperville Education Foundation (NEF) raises and grants funds for programs that enhance and enrich the educational experience of Naperville School District 203 students.
With the generous support of foundations, businesses, educational professionals and individual donors, NEF is able to provide financial resources that increase learning opportunities by supplementing school district budgets. NEF encourages creativity, innovation and excellence in our students by helping to insure that every student in the district can take advantage of opportunities to make the most of their education.
NEF helped create and fund Study Skills Academies in each of the 21 Naperville School District schools.The Academies give students a boost with homework, additional learning strategies and time from a skilled educator. The Study Skills Academies have been credited with helping raise standardized test scores in the District.
