Aurora East Education FoundationFundación Educativa del Este de Aurora (AEEF por sus siglas en inglés)

AEEFLogoThe Aurora East Educational Foundation is a not-for-profit tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) corporation, organized under the laws of the State of Illinois and established to attract private donations of funds and services for the purpose of enriching educational programs and providing opportunities not otherwise available through traditional revenue sources.

The AEEF is directed by a group of private citizens, many of who are graduates of East Aurora High School and who serve without compensation. The efforts of AEEF are supported by the Board of Education.

Within three short years from its founding in 1993, the Aurora East Educational Foundation met its first goal of establishing an endowment fund of $300,000. The interest from that endowment is used to fund educational programs in East Aurora School District 131 – programs that would otherwise not exist for lack of financial support. During its brief history, the foundation has funded scores of programs that have touched the lives of thousands of students throughout East Aurora School District 131.

Dentro de los tres breves años de su fundación en 1993, la Fundación Educativa del Este de Aurora cumplió su primer objetivo, estableciendo un fondo de beneficencia de $300,000. El interés de esta beneficencia se utilizó para financiar programas educativos en el Distrito Escolar 131 del Este de Aurora, programas que de otra manera no existirían por falta de apoyo financiero. Durante su breve historia, la fundación ha financiado decenas de programas que han tenido un impacto en las vidas de miles de estudiantes en todo el Distrito Escolar 131 del Este de Aurora.
