Donate, Partner, Engage

There’s a role for every company, every organization, and every Chicagoan to get engaged with CPS and support our schools and students.


“CPS is a district on the rise, but we won't rest until every child in Chicago has the same access to the world-class opportunities and education this city has to offer.”

— Dr. Janice Jackson


“Every day we wake up on a mission to create a brighter future for our students by making each day better, more full of learning, and hope.”

— Stacy Stewart, Principal, Belmont-Cragin


“While I learned to code, I learned how to speak. It helped me find my voice. I have skills; I have self-confidence; I cannot wait for the future!”

— Ajax Bachor, Student, Walt Disney Magnet Elementary School


"When students see external partners/funders supporting their learning, they better understand the value of education and the social responsibility shown by these organizations that give back to the community."

— Rita Leary, Ashburn Elementary

Recent Updates

Chicago has launched a new, 3-year $24 million, effort to bring trauma-informed care into its schools, but that effort won't be about bringing new staff into buildings.

Instead, the district plans to train educators + support staff to meet those needs

In order to recover from a year filled with trauma like we just experienced, we need to focus on the healing and equitably addressing the social and emotional needs of our school communities.

We're thrilled by @Chicago_Beyond's partnership in this vision for @ChiPubSchools becoming a more healing-centered district.
