Charter schools in Illinois seek and receive funding and in-kind donations from many sources, including individuals, local businesses and foundations. We recommend that you develop a fundraising plan as part of your charter school development process and pursue multiple funding opportunities.
Walton Family Foundation (WFF) supports the planning and startup of public charter schools that show potential for dramatically raising student achievement through various grant opportunities. Applications for the 2013 grant cycle in Illinois are due September 12. Click here for more information.
