About the CCSD21 Community Education Opportunities Fund

The CCSD21 Community Education Opportunities Fund was established in 2019. The fund looks to build and expand upon the tremendous generosity shown by the community through the Katie Samsel Fund.

Katie Samsel was a former principal of Whitman Elementary School. When she passed away in 1974, a memorial fund was created by her family with the purpose of helping School District 21 students and their families. The function of the fund has varied, from providing eyeglasses to students in need, to helping families that were displaced from their homes due to fire or flood.

The CCSD21 Community Education Opportunities Fund will continue to flexibly provide for community needs through acute, targeted response or by achieving long-term community goals.

Donations to the CCSD21 Community Education Opportunities Fund are accepted year-round through the Lake County Community Foundation. To direct your donation to a specific purpose, please complete the “In honor of” field with one of these options:

  • General Assistance Fund: This fund will be used to support ongoing food and home good needs.
  • Katie Samsel Response Fund: This fund will be used to support direct requests for personal care and medical expenses.
