The Thornton Alumni Legacy Fund, whose goal is to cultivate change for the benefit of current and future students at Thornton Township High School, is an independent 501(c)(3) organization. Resources are secured from Thornton High School alumni and friends to create new and to enhance current academic and extracurricular programs. For example, TALF has revived the yearbook, purchased world history maps, restarted a girls’ dance group (the SophistiCats), refurbished the auditorium, provided technology for the science labs, and much more, as you can see in the section titled allocations on the right.

Additionally, TALF created and continues to bring the Distinguished Speakers Series  to TTHS several times each year. The Speakers Series invites alumni to return and talk with students about their keys to their success, and provides insight into their chosen profession.
