"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."
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
