Who we are


Invest in The Fund

For nearly two decades, our work has exposed us to the dedicated individuals and groups working to grow great public schools in Chicago. Join them.

Principal Pride

We know how hard principals work and how important their leadership is. This fall, we're kicking off a campaign to make sure everyone knows it, too.

We use our blog to amplify the voices of our city’s best principals and to tell the positive stories we see in our schools. Join us for a new story each Friday.
