The Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy, under the auspices of the Naperville Education Foundation,
supports grants to individual educators, or entire schools, in an effort to promote a deeper understanding
and teaching of literacy, to enrich instructional programs, to provide opportunities to link literacy between the
home and the school, and to lay foundations that will develop life-long readers. The Fund was established in 1996 by friends and family of the Nicaricos, faculty members at River Woods Elementary School and other staff members of
Naperville Community Unit School District 203.
