The purpose of the Genoa-Kingston Education Foundation is to accept and disburse contributions, gifts and bequests from individuals, groups or businesses and to raise funds to support efforts to enrich and supplement the regular education programs offered students of Genoa-Kingston Community Unit District #424.
Would you like to support our efforts?
Public engagement, community support, and adequate resources are essential to the success of public education.
Our objectives are simple and straightforward:
To provide funding to enhance educational programming in the Genoa-Kingston school district.
To create and build a lasting source of revenue to benefit the Genoa-Kingston school district and our future, which is our children.
To serve donors in achieving their philanthropic objectives in supporting education.
Our group is funded privately, is self sustaining, and uses no tax resources. We welcome your input and look forward to working with you to bring to our children the best education and greatest opportunities possible.

Want to join our efforts but not sure where to start? Attend a mouse race. The mouse race is our main fundraising event and will take place on March 14, 2020 at the Genoa Veterans Home. This is our tenth year! This is a really fun evening that also has sponsorship opportunities. The mouse race is kind of like a horse race, there is some betting, some beverages, and a boisterous crowd! No one under 21 is allowed.
