Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Literacy Fund
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.
