The Taylorville School District has received a $25,000 check from current and past board member representatives of the Taylorville Public Schools Foundation. The check has been donated for the auditorium and field house capital project. The funds were a combination of a restricted endowment from the estate of Eleanor A.G. Kammerer for the construction of a pavilion for the performing arts and the remainder was supported by the Foundation’s operating budget for the 2022-2023 school year. Ele Kammerer, the aunt of retired District #3 educator Susan Jackson, gifted the funds upon her death for the purpose of a pavilion.
The Schools Foundation hosts an annual Spring Fundraiser making an annual appeal and accepting legacy gifts with either a restricted or unrestricted purpose. The Schools Foundation exists to support the TCUSD #3 through mini-grants, all school grants, a district-wide grant, and an annual fund-a-need project.
