NEF Kid Booster Assistance Program

In these unprecedented times, the Naperville Education Foundation (NEF) has created a Kid Booster Crisis Fund, an emergency fund providing immediate access to financial assistance for students and families in need.

The Kid Booster Crisis Fund will help students that have been impacted by COVID-19. Possible use of funding includes:

    Financial support related to housing

    Meals for weekends and evenings

    Transportation needs

This crisis fund will directly help our most at-risk students, including the 15% of Naperville 203’s 16,500 students who qualify for free and reduced lunch, and the 1% of our students who are homeless. These are the families in our community who are most vulnerable to the overall impact of this virus.

This fund is a part of NEF’s existing Kid Booster Anonymous Fund. Kid Booster helps students in times of need and always has. This fund is accessed by the district’s social workers to meet the needs of the most at-risk students in our community. They access this fund when no other source of funding can be found. It’s the safety net for our students.

Donations can be made online at  or via checks made payable to NEF and mailed to NEF, 203 W. Hillside, Naperville, IL 60540.

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, who want to ensure that every student in the district can take advantage of opportunities to make the most of their education, we thank you for your generous support.

The Naperville Education Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 Illinois corporation, supporting Naperville 203.
