Fund Story

In 2018, the graduates of Isaac C. Elston Senior High School established an enduring legacy by endowing this fund which will benefit the administrators, teachers, and students of The Michigan City Area Public Schools. The purpose of the fund is to make supplemental financial resources available for educational materials, supplies, equipment, special programs, etc. that are not included in the school's annual budget. Thereby helping to assure that Michigan City Area Schools’ students continue to receive the outstanding educational experience they deserve.

We are Elston graduates coming together to support public education in our hometown. Our generosity can make a difference for Michigan City youth while at the same time creating an enduring legacy.
