Greg Probst Appointed District 129 Community Treasurer by School Board

From West Aurora School District 129’s Press Release:

West Aurora’s School Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Probst as community treasurer. His appointment is effective immediately.

Probst currently serves as the vice president of finance and operations for the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley, a tax-exempt public charity that allows individuals, businesses, and other non-profit organizations to establish a permanent endowment and temporary funds within the confines of one large foundation. Probst is responsible for overseeing the financial, operational, and technology matters of the Foundation.

As community treasurer, Probst will examine the district’s financial reporting and present his review to the board once a quarter.

In addition to being a local community member, Probst is a graduate of West Aurora High School and Illinois State University. He will now add treasurer to a list of other volunteer roles he currently holds, which includes acting as vice president of the Aurora Historical Society and president of the Aurora American Legion Band.

“As a proud Blackhawk, I would like to thank the board for the opportunity to serve our community in this role,” said Probst. “I believe that being able to provide feedback and insight through the lens of philanthropy and connections to wealth management will have a demonstrable impact on how we, as a community, are better together to ensure value for our taxpayers, donors, and students.”

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
