The Mount Vernon Township High School District #201 Foundation was formed in 2005 by a group of Mount Vernon Township High School supporters who were concerned about the future of the school. The group did not want financial concerns to hinder the opportunities available to our students.
Since its inception, the Foundation has enhanced the school programs by supporting a variety of projects. The Foundation is organized as a non-profit corporation and tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. A rotating Board of Directors composed of citizens, teachers and students meets monthly with an Annual Meeting in August.
