Illinois ASBO Foundation

The Illinois ASBO Foundation was created to elevate the status of the profession of school business administration, to enhance the visibility of the value a school business manager brings to a school/school district, to provide college scholarships or support the foundations or school district initiatives of award recipients, and to provide financial grants to community services, policy and research initiatives or charitable organizations that serve children.

 An investment in the Foundation, whether through a donation or participation in other Foundation initiatives, is really an investment into the school profession  — one that ultimately benefits children.

Far-Reaching Impact

As a business official, I’ve always considered my role to be mainly behind the scenes. I think it is critical that Illinois ASBO and the Foundation continue to be the cheerleaders for the profession so that we are valued in our districts. This award highlights the contributions of business officials to the education of our children, supporting that initiative.”
Beth MillardBeth Millard2015 Foundation Monarch Award Recipient
Your donations have most definitely not gone to waste — they help make the aspirations of future CSBOs possible. I am so grateful for those who have donated, and plan to also donate myself one day to help make someone’s dreams possible as well.  Many deserving students may not have been able to follow their aspirations without them.”
Brittany Kinder2017 School Business Management Scholarship Recipient
It’s through your generosity that we are able to continue to strengthen our programs and services to enrich the lives of over 7,000 children and adults.”
