Become a Board Member

The Sherrard Academic Foundation is always seeking individuals with a desire to help us further our mission.  We currently have vacancies on our Board of Directors and if you are interested in becoming a board member, we would like to talk with you.

If you would like to learn more becoming a board member, please contact us at  If you would like to apply to become a board member, download and complete the Board Member Application, then mail it to the Sherrard Academic Foundation, P.O. Box 317, Sherrard, IL  61281 or submit by e-mail to the above email address.

Board Member Potential Time Commitment

The Foundation board meets virtually 6-8 times a year, with most meetings lasting about an hour. Meeting dates are flexible to work around everyone's busy schedules. The time commitment, other than monthly board meetings, would entail involvement in planning and organizing special projects, sending mailings and information to past and prospective donors. The time commitment can be minimal, but your efforts in supporting our schools can be meaningful to the students, staff, and community.



If you would like to get involved with the Sherrard Academic Foundation but don’t think you want to serve on the Board, we have other opportunities where you can help.  Some areas are:

  • Clerical duties such as stuffing and addressing envelopes.
  • Suggesting new events and fundraising efforts

Please contact us at and a Foundation board member will contact you about ways you can help.
