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
