    What’s Your Legacy?

    In a time when no one believed that buildings could reach the clouds, Fazlur Khan proved the world wrong. His ground-breaking design, the Sears Tower, stands as his legacy and inspires the world today. The Fazlur Khan Center for Innovation (FKCI) will be a fully equipped, state-of-the-art technology center for our students. The FKCI will be located on the second floor of the Islamic Foundation School building with iMac computers, iPads, app coded and controlled devices, and makerspace texts. With all of this technology, out students will become equipped with skills so they can grow to leave their legacies. By attending a Native Deen benefit concert, IFS elementary students helped raise $2,800 to initiate the FKCI. We need another $7,000 to establish the FKCI. Now, it’s your turn. With your donations, no matter how big or small, you can leave your legacy. Each and every donation made will contribute to the FKCI and change the lives of students for years to come. Donations are accepted at the main office, donation kiosks at school, or at: https://us.mohid.co/il/swcs/ifsvp/masjid/online/donation/index/26 Leave Your Legacy Today.
