Announcing the Kid Booster Crisis Fund

In these unprecedented times, NEF has created the Kid Booster Crisis Fund, an emergency fund providing immediate access to financial assistance for students and families in need.

The Kid Booster Crisis Fund will help students that have been impacted by COVID-19. Possible use of funding includes:

-Financial support related to housing

-Meals for evenings and weekends

-Transportation needs

The crisis fund will directly help our most at-risk students, including the fifteen percent of Naperville 203’s 16,500 students who qualify for free and reduced lunch, and the 1% of our students who are homeless. These are the families in our community who are most vulnerable to the overall impact of this virus.

The fund is part of NEF’s existing Kid Booster Anonymous Fund. Kid Booster helps families in time of need and always has. The fund is accessed by the district’s social workers to meet the needs of the most at-risk students in our community. They access this fund when no other source of funding can be found. It’s the safety net for our students. Donate today.
