West Aurora High School Class of 1967 Fund

Established 2017

The West Aurora High School Class of 1967 Fund was created by the members of the Class of 1967 to commemorate their 50th Class Reunion.  This Fund was created to support the needs of West Aurora High School and the A+ Foundation, enhance the curriculum of West Aurora School District 129, inspire excellence in students and staff, expand opportunities for community involvement and foster alumni connections.

The Fund was also established to honor those who have so positively impacted the Class of 1967, including parents, family members, teachers, coaches, administrators and the West Aurora community.  In addition, the West Aurora High School Class of 1967 Fund is dedicated to the memory of their classmates and family members who have passed away.

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.

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.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Richard and Susan Schindel Scholarship Funds

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!

…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.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.
