IDEA Fund

IDEA Fund

Robbie Boland and Danny Crigler, who were Wilson School District seniors in 2009, created the IDEA Fund as part of a senior project. The two created the fund at Berks County Community Foundation to supplement the education of Wilson special education students as evidenced by their Individual Education Plan (under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act or its successor) by providing assistance above and beyond what is called for in their Individual Education Plans. Inspired by their mothers, who both work in the special education field, Boland and Crigler hold an annual golf tournament fundraiser for the fund. The IDEA Fund is often used to send children to summer camps or to other activities outside of the school year.
