GUARDIANS OF EDUCATION MEMBERS
The Alton Educational Foundation was founded in 2001 as a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization. It was designed to complement and enhance the opportunities of students and staff in the Alton School District, by raising and distributing funding for programs that are not financed with tax dollars.
