District 58 and 68

In addition to granting academic scholarships to area high schools, in 2015 and 2016, the Bonfield Foundation supported Downers Grove School District 58 and Woodridge School District 68 students who demonstrated Jim Bonfield's personal perseverance, strong moral character, joy of learning and commitment to community. This year the Foundation donated $1,000 to each of the 20 schools in Districts 58 and 68 to recognize students who demonstrate a love of learning, extra effort and/or good citizenship.  

Character. Commitment. Community.
