Support Our Work

Charitable contributions afford the IDeaL Education Foundation with the opportunity to fund annual scholarships for deserving high school and college students, and provide ongoing youth mentoring program activities. Listed below are different ways in which our work can be supported:

  • Corporate Sponsorship: Corporate sponsorship provides an excellent opportunity for companies and organizations to support the IDeaL Education Foundation in its efforts to provide leadership and community service. As a corporate sponsor of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Luncheon, or any of the Foundation’s programs and activities, you can select the appropriate level of support based on your ability to give. We have provided helpful information here to assist you in learning more about our sponsorship levels.
  • In-Kind Donations: In-kind donations provide an excellent opportunity for individuals, companies and organizations to support the IDeaL Education Foundation in its efforts to provide leadership and community service to the Chicagoland area. In-kind donations can be used as silent auction or raffle items at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Luncheon, or can be utilized in the Foundation’s programs and activities. We gladly welcome all in-kind donations, and have provided helpful information here to assist you in learning more about charitable donations to the Foundation.
  • Monetary Donations: Monetary donations provide immediate capital for the on-going support of the IDeaL Education Foundation’s programs. Charitable cash contributions also help us to grow our Spirit of Brotherhood Scholarship Fund, which will allow us to award larger, multi-year college scholarships to deserving students. We currently accept monetary donations mailed directly to our postal address, as well as online contributions through Network for Good’s DonateNow service.

All donations to the IDeaL Education Foundation are tax deductible, as permitted by law, and are greatly appreciated.  Please contact us directly if you would like to discuss potential sponsorship and donation opportunities.
