CFF School Partnership Program

Engaging Partners. Building Relationships. Maximizing Impact.

The CFF School Partnership Program (SPP) provides a unique, customizable opportunity for our partners to build meaningful relationships with individual CPS schools. Companies, foundations, and individuals continue stepping up to meet the moment. SPP is a natural result of our philanthropic community’s positive experiences and interest in more closely supporting Chicago Public Schools.

SPP creates mutually-beneficial partnerships based on aligned goals from schools and partners. Engage with the School Partnership Program to come alongside a CPS school and encounter their unique needs and strengths.
