2023 Tree Sales have ended
The cornerstone of our annual investment in Elmhurst Public Schools is awarding Thiems grants, named in memory of
Dr. Russell Thiems, Superintendent of District 205 from 1983 to 1992. Dr. Thiems recognized the need to provide opportunities for students beyond what was possible through tax revenues.
Since 1990, over 800 grants have been awarded totaling over $2.5 million. Applications for our 2023-24 Thiems grant cycle are now being accepted. Any teacher, staff member, student, parent or community member can apply. What's your idea for increasing innovation, curiosity, inclusion and access for all D205 students? We can't wait to hear!
Applications are now open for our
2023-24 Thiems Grant funding cycle
