What We Do
The Fund believes that solutions to the challenges in public schools exist. We devote time, leverage data and invest in programs and initiatives that enable Chicago to attract, support and keep strong principals.
“The Fund has provided me with the resources and relationships necessary to make my student-centered vision for teaching and learning a reality, leading to positive gains in academic outcomes and school culture. There is no greater champion for principal leadership and student success in Chicago than The Fund.”
