NEF began 20 years ago as an organization formed by volunteers focused on at-risk and in-need district 203 students. Nothing has changed as active volunteers remain the cornerstone of the Foundation. NEF is always in need of community-minded individuals who are willing to donate their time to enhance our students' school experience.
Current volunteer opportunities
Want to build connections and help increase NEF's revenues, raise awareness in our community, evaluate grant proposals, become a Trustee or a student representative, help with special events or programming?
If you're interested, please call Ann E. Spehar at (630) 420-3086. Thank you.
