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.

 

"I'm going to work with the Children First Fund, which is an amazing partner -and we have so much philanthropy, so much support in the community - so we can increase the number of children we're serving"

— CPS CEO Pedro Martinez

 

“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
