We’re Helping Kids Achieve
The mission of the CLEF Good News Fund is to partner with Chicago’s Lutheran schools to ensure that every child in Chicago has the opportunity to experience Christ’s love through a quality Christian education.
The CLEF Good News Fund was established in 1993 by the Chicagoland Lutheran Educational Foundation, a 501(c)(3) educational foundation.
CLEF is a member of the Illinois Coalition of Nonpublic Schools.
It is with great sadness that we share the news that one of CLEF’s founding board members and great friends Bill Everson passed away earlier this year. A man of many talents, he will be remembered for his humble dedication, wise counsel, and hands-on nature, including his extensive work with UKANDU. Well done, good and faithful servant.
