We are so glad you are visiting our new site! And we are excited to be introducing it at such a perfect time. As autumn changes to winter and the holiday season approaches, the Union R-XI Foundation has some exciting plans for the next two months…
To get the most out of your time here, please consider the following (items in red are links):
- First, please sign up for our free bimonthly email newsletter. Every two months, we will publish and send you upcoming events and the latest news about Foundation activities. And, please tell everyone you know how to get their email address on our list so they can also stay in the loop!
- With the holidays approaching, there are some quick and simple ways that you can make a difference to Union schoolchildren. One of the most heartwarming is by using AmazonSmile anytime you order anything from Amazon. Simply go to smile.amazon.com and search for and select the Union R-XI School District Foundation as your favorite charity. Then shop as you normally do. The Amazon Foundation will donate a small percentage of your order amount to the Foundation. It costs you and the R-XI Foundation nothing but a few clicks. Amazon actually foots the bill! And you can do this throughout the year for all your Amazon purchases! Just make sure your Amazon account page indicates that the Union R-XI Foundation is your target charity each time you order online. Thank you in advance for using AmazonSmile!!!
- Tuesday, November 27 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – is “Giving Tuesday 2018!” A spin-off of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday has become the globally recognized day of the year for folks to donate to their favorite charities. And with the end of the year and tax season looming, many find late November a perfect time to assess their recent charitable giving to cultivate the best results for all from their philanthropy. Please consider using our DONATE! button in the menu above to make a contribution to the Foundation as 2019 approaches. On our simple-to-use and completely secure DONATE! page, you can make a one-time or recurring (weekly, monthly, etc.) gift, help endow our scholarship and grant funds, make memorial or tribute gifts in the name of someone special, or earmark your contribution for the specific Foundation projects with which you identify most. And please feel free to contribute at any convenient time of the year. We would love to hear from you on November 27, but ANY time of year that you are supporting the Union R-XI school district is a great time!
- Our newest project is a Polar Bear Jump to be held on February 2 at the Memorial Park Lake. If you are interested in participating or just being there to cheer on the brave of heart, please check the information on the Polar Bear Jump page.
After you have looked into those items, be sure to check out the rest of the site. A quick scan of the menu will surely turn up information that piques your interest. And, of course, please use the Contact Us page to send questions, feedback, or ideas about how the Foundation can better serve you and the youth of our great city.
