Hundreds of people came out to support Foundation 65’s My 65 Benefit on Jan. 25 at the Hilton Orrington in Evanston. Foundation 65 raised over $100,000, exceeding fundraising goals and allowing more support for all District 65 schools. The proceeds will enhance support education in Evanston, specifically in the areas of arts and literacy.

“We are thrilled, not only that we have exceeded our fundraising goal, but that parents and friends representing every school in District 65 and from across the community came out to support us,” said Lise Jinno, Foundation 65’s executive director. “We are extremely grateful for the support of our title sponsor, Tawani Foundation and our lead donors, the Lewis-Sebring Family Foundation and Northwestern University.”

Foundation 65 is a non-profit organization that raises and grants funds for literacy and arts projects that expand, enrich and complement educational opportunities for the students, staff and community in Evanston-Skokie District 65. Foundation 65 is an independent operating foundation with its own volunteer board and funds. Since 2003, Foundation 65 has invested over $1 million in projects and programs, making an impact at every school in the District.
