The Carlinville Public Schools Foundation is committed to raising funds through donations to help support Carlinville Unit School District One.  The ongoing budget crisis in the State of Illinois has caused drastic cutbacks in the level of State funding available to our schools.  While state funding decreases, the needs of our students do not.

Donations allow the Foundation to issue grants to our schools to help students develop important academic, work and social skills.  The generous support of alumni and friends of the Carlinville School District provides that extra measure of excellence. 



Our foundation has always been and remains committed to meet the needs of our students that are not being met through other sources.  This past May, we were able to fund learning resource grants totaling more than $43,000.00.
