Meet Elizabeth Greiwe


As an Associate on the Engagement team, Elizabeth’s job is to highlight and support The Fund’s work to improve principal quality by sharing its story – and the stories of Chicago’s school leaders – through traditional and digital media.

Invest in Chicago's Principals

Principals have an out-sized impact on their schools and communities. Any amount can make a difference.

Support Our Work

We aim to serve more than 600 principals and 360,000 students by 2023, with an emphasis on the schools that most need support.

Celebrate School Leaders

Every October, school communities, city officials and corporate leaders join together to lift up the great work of principals and their APs.
