Visit The I.D.E.A. Store to Support Champaign-Urbana Schools while Finding Inspiration for Creative Projects

The I.D.E.A. Store LogoThe I.D.E.A. Store, CUSF’s latest social enterprise, is an eco-friendly marketplace that serves parents, teachers, students, artists and crafters in the local community. The main idea behind The I.D.E.A. Store is to provide Champaign-Urbana and surrounding communities with a place to donate and buy reusable materials of all kinds while contributing to the education for all K-12 students. In addition, the store also provides instructional workshops open to all members of the public.

All proceeds go to support the work of the Champaign-Urbana Schools Foundation and all donated materials are clean, safe and ready for use in many daily projects and crafts.
