Viking Fund


The goal of The Viking Fund is to provide families facing hardship with financial support to ensure all students are able to participate in extracurriculars with activity fees including athletics, Science Olympiad, school play, band and orchestra.  

The Viking Fund is supported through the donations from members of the Avoca Community which include district families, staff and/or community members.  Donations are accepted online through the Avoca Web Store or by cash, check or credit card in person or by mail by submitting payment and the Viking Fund Donation Form to the Avoca Business Office located on the second floor of Marie Murphy School at 2921 Illinois Road, Wilmette, IL 60091. There is a 3.56% processing fee if you pay by credit card. Avoca is considered a charitable organization for tax purposes.  Thank you for your support.  

To apply for Activity Fee assistance, please submit the Fee Waiver Application and proof of income to Beth Dever in the Avoca Business Office. If you qualify for free lunch, all activity fees are automatically waived. For more information, please visit the Financial Assistance page.
