Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is known to affect 1 in every 64 children in the United States. ASD does not discriminate or affect one group more than another. ASD impacts children of all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups across Illinois and the United States. The Winston Knolls Foundation was established to help individuals affected by ASD and, their families, by ensuring access to essential educational and therapeutic support. We strive to give every child with Autism the opportunity to achieve their best life.
The Winston Knolls Foundation is a State of Illinois 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as the philanthropic entity of the Winston Knolls Education Group’s program, The Winston Knolls School. The school serves over 30 partner school districts within the area and plans to continue that support and reach more schools who need assistance in providing their students with ASD, the unique education and therapeutic supports needed. To that end, the Foundation has acquired a new campus that will better support their students and staff for the bright future ahead.
The new school building, tucked in a quiet neighborhood on 2.5 green acres in Elgin, IL., will include three outdoor courtyards, an activities field, and a custom designed sensory playground inside the walls of the exterior courtyard. Every classroom will face a landscaped courtyard, with access available through the sliding glass doors. The second floor of the new building will also include a gymnasium and a flexible multipurpose space that will be used for adaptive physical education, after-school events, and celebrations. The new school is expected to open for the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year.
We need your help to meet our goal of renovating the new school and providing an exceptional space for children with ASD. If you are able to support our GoFundMe Campaign by making a direct donation or simply sharing our story with your network, we would greatly appreciate your assistance.
