"I am committed to making sure that students are exposed to a wide range of experiences that will allow them to envision who they could become in the future."
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.
Our Current Fund
In fall 2017, The Fund launched fundraising efforts to support our current phase of work; a $26.5 million effort to make principal quality an enduring aspect of Chicago's school improvement strategy, serving more than 600 principals and 350,000 students, with an emphasis on our most vulnerable schools. With continued support from the corporate, philanthropic and nonprofit communities, we will make permanent the gains of the last decade.Learn more
