Why is your donation important
An educated citizenry is essential to our democracy. The costs of higher education have far outpaced the rate of inflation in recent years. Your donation to the Foundation's scholarship program provides financial assistance to Delavan-Darien High School graduates as they seek post-secondary opportunities. It is a tangible sign of the community's faith in its graduates to allow them to achieve their educational goals and make their dreams a reality.
The Delavan-Darien School District foundation assists as many students as possible with scholarships and grants for their post-secondary education plans. However, we can only accomplish this goal with the support of the residents of the community and school district. Your gift of cash, stock or a bequest from your estate will assist the Foundation in achieving this goal and demonstrate your faith in Delavan-Darien High School graduates.
